With a consecutive "asymmetric allylic alkylation (AAA)/cross-metathesis (CM)/conjugate addition (CA)" protocol it is possible to synthesize either stereoisomer of compounds containing a vicinal dialkyl array with excellent stereoselectivity. The versatility of this protocol in natural product synthesis is demonstrated in the preparation of the ant pheromones faranal and lasiol.
