Regioselective electrophilic borylation of haloarenes

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Haloarenes undergo direct borylation using amine : BCl3 : AlCl3 in the ratio of 1 : 1 : 2. After esterification the pinacol boronate esters are isolated in good yield with regioselectivity controlled by steric and electronic effects.
