Abstract

The development of a high yielding, both nucleophile and electrophile selective cross-coupling reaction with aromatic rings is presented. The reaction is general with respect to functional groups. Furthermore, the products still contain a boronic ester and a bromide. These two functional groups allow them to be easy-to-prepare, highly complex starting materials for further reactions, avoiding protecting group transformations.
