Synthesis and reactivity of solid-supported organotrifluoroborates in Suzuki cross-coupling.


PMID 22404451

Abstract

Solid-supported organotrifluoroborates were prepared in high yields by ion exchange with Amberlyst resins. The reactivity of solid supported aryltrifluoroborates was evaluated in Suzuki-Miyaura couplings with numerous aryl bromide partners. Electron-rich and -poor substituents were tolerated on both substrates, providing yields up to 90%. Examples of alkyl-, alkenyl-, alkynyl-, and heteroaryltrifluoborates were also successfully cross-coupled to aryl halides.
