Arylboronic Acid-Pinacol Esters

Chemfiles Volume 1 Article 1

The synthesis of biaryl compounds via the Suzuki coupling reaction has become more commonplace now that many arylboronic acids are readily available. Several years ago, Miyaura, et al. demonstrated the utility of cyclic pinacol esters of arylboronic acids in Suzuki coupling reactions. 2,3

We are pleased to offer the following arylboronic acid pinacol esters4 as part of a growing line of products used in the Suzuki coupling reaction.
