An experimentally simple, fast, mild, and scalable transition-metal-free cross-coupling between boronic acids and nitrosoarenes enables the synthesis of di(hetero)arylamines. The procedure tolerates a wide range of functional groups, including carbonyls, nitro, halogens, free OH and NH groups, and also permits the synthesis of sterically hindered compounds.
