An efficient synthetic protocol involving iron-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions between organolithium compounds and alkenyl iodides as key coupling partners was achieved. More than 30 examples were obtained with moderate to good yields and high stereospecificity. Gram-scale and synthetic applications of this procedure are recorded herein to demonstrate its feasibility and potential utilization.
