β-Regioselectivity has been demonstrated for the Heck arylation of N,N-disubstituted allylamines. The scope and limitations of the reaction were demonstrated by the coupling of N,N-dibenzylallylamine with a variety of substituted aryl triflates. This methodology represents a straightforward approach for the efficient preparation of a variety of primary β-aryl allyl amines.
