Synthesis of aryltrifluoroborates


Recent Literature

A nickel-catalyzed Miyaura borylation of aryl and heteroaryl halides and pseudohalides using tetrahydroxydiboron (BBA) proved to be widely functional group tolerant and applicable to the synthesis of a broad range of aryltrifluoroborates at room temperature.

A simple and efficient palladium-catalyzed reaction of aryl chlorides with tetrahydroxydiboron gives arylboronic acids. To ensure preservation of the carbon-boron bond, the boronic acids were efficiently converted in situ to trifluoroborate derivatives or boronates in very good yields. Finally, a two-step, one-pot method for the synthesis of biaryls from two aryl chlorides was developed.

Arylboronic acids and aryl trifluoroborates are synthesized in a one-pot sequence by Ir-catalyzed borylation of arenes. To prepare the arylboronic acids, the Ir-catalyzed borylation is followed by oxidative cleavage of the pinacol boronates with NaIO4. To prepare the aryltrifluoroborate, the Ir-catalyzed borylation is followed by displacement of pinacol by KHF2.
