A selective cross-coupling of an aryl radical and a pyridine-stabilized boryl radical enables a transition-metal-free borylation reaction of haloarenes under mild conditions. This pyridine-catalyzed borylation features a broad substrate scope, operational simplicity, and gram-scale synthetic ability.
