Palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling reaction of β-amino-β-trifluoromethylvinyl bromides 7 and 8 with boronic acids has been achieved to afford new stable β,β-disubstituted α-trifluoromethyl enamines 12 and 13, which can be used as masked ketones. The ketone function can be released in acidic medium.
