Metal assistance: Dimerization of the allylzinc monocation gives the dimetalated coupling product in quantitative yield (see scheme). Kinetic and thermodynamic parameters of this reversible metallo-ene reaction have been determined. This reaction serves as a model system for the alkali-metal catalyzed production of 4-methylpentene.
