The use of gem-bis(boronates) as precursors enables a construction of quaternary α-aryl aldehydes, in which both groups are installed simultaneously. This methodology provides a general strategy to produce quaternary α-aryl aldehydes with broad scopes and synthetic convenience. In addition, gem-bis(boronates) are readily available from ketones.
