A new, simple, and effective method for the diazotization of a wide range of arylamines using a polymer-supported diazotization agent in the presence of p-toluenesulfonic acid gives various pure arenediazonium tosylates with unusual high stabilities. As a result, these salts are useful and versatile substrates for subsequent transformations, such as halogenation and Heck-type reactions.
