    See ya later, allylgator: A palladium-catalyzed allylation reaction that employs N,N-dimethylacetamide dimethyl acetal (DMADA) for the in situ activation of allylic alcohol derivatives has been achieved. The reaction proceeds under neutral, mild conditions without the need of acid or base additives and special ligands. The reaction also allows for the use of both carbon and heteroatom nucleophiles along with a range of allylic alcohols.
