A variety of β-aryl ketones and aldehydes were facilely synthesized via a Pd(II)/Ag2CO3-mediated decarboxylative Heck type reaction between readily available benzoic acid derivatives and allylic alcohols under mild conditions. The control experiments indicated that this transformation may proceed via a hydrogen migration process.
