Herein we successfully applied Katritzky salts as the alkyl electrophile in the reductive allylic defluorinative cross-coupling reaction with α-trifluoromethyl alkenes. The merger of C–F and C–N bond cleavage via the synergistic effect of nickel and zinc allows the efficient synthesis of diverse gem-difluoroalkenes with a good tolerance for various functional groups.
