An efficient one-pot C-H activation/borylation/oxidation protocol for the preparation of phenols is described. This method is particularly attractive for the generation of meta-substituted phenols bearing ortho-/para-directing groups, as such substrates are difficult to access by other phenol syntheses.
Arylboronic acids and esters are invaluable tools for the chemical community. These powerful reagents are used for a variety of transformations, most notably the Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling reaction.
