An efficient palladium catalyzed cross coupling of tributyl(vinyl)stannane with dialkoxy and dialkyl substituted 1,4-dihalobenzenes is described. This single-step coupling provides an efficient synthesis of functionalized 2,5-divinylbenzenes, which are useful precursors of 1,4-phenylenevinylene copolymers.
