    An additive/Brønsted acid/base free, highly efficient and chemoselective transetherification of electron deficient vinylogous esters and water mediated de-alkylation using an earth-abundant Fe-catalyst under very mild reaction conditions is described. This reaction is highly selective to primary alcohols over secondary alcohols, has good functional group tolerance, is scalable to gram scale and a purification free sequential transetherification in a continuous flow mode is demonstrated.
