One-pot borylation/Suzuki-Miyaura sp2-sp3 cross-coupling.

We describe the first one-pot borylation/Suzuki-Miyaura sp2-sp3 cross-coupling between readily available aryl (pseudo)halides and activated alkyl chlorides. This method streamlines the synthesis of diaryl methanes, α-aryl carbonyls and allyl aryl compounds, substructures that are commonly found in life changing drug molecules.
