3-Tributylstannylsulfolene (1) undergoes palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions with aryl and vinyl halides, cyclohex-1-enyl triflates and acyl chlorides in moderate to excellent yield, thereby allowing rapid entry to a diverse range of 3-substituted sulfolenes, species known to be reliable precursors to 3-substituted 1,3-dienes.
