Enamides, dienamides, and enynamides are important building blocks in synthetic, biological, and medicinal chemistry as well as materials science. Despite the extensive breath of their potential utility in synthetic chemistry, there is a lack of simple, high-yielding methods to deliver them efficiently and as single isomers. In this paper, we present a novel, protecting group free, efficient, and stereoselective approach to the generation of β-halo-enamides. The methodology presented provides a robust synthetic platform from which E- or Z-enamides can be generated in good yields and with complete stereocontrol.
