(Equation presented) A highly effective protocol for allylation of secondary benzylic alcohol derivatives with allylsilanes in the presence of catalytic amounts of B(C6F5)3 has been developed. Some additional functionalities, such as bromo, acetoxy, and primary benzyloxy groups, were tolerated under these conditions.
