The hydrostannation of allenes 1 with tributylstannyl hydride in the presence of B(C6F5)3 catalyst produced vinylstannanes 2 regioselectiveiy, whereas the hydrostannation of 1 with tributylstannyl and triphenylstannyl hydride in the presence of Pd(PPh3)4 catalyst gave allylstannanes 5,6 regioand stereo (in certain cases)-selectively. The mechanisms for these catalytic reactions were proposed.
