Copper catalysts enable the electrophilic carbofunctionalization of alkynes with vinyl- and diaryliodonium triflates. The new process forms highly substituted alkenyl triflates from a range of alkynes via a pathway that is opposite to classical carbometalation. The alkenyl triflate products can be elaborated through cross-coupling reactions to generate synthetically useful tetrasubstituted alkenes.
