Abstract

The efficient generation of aryl radicals from arylboronic acids by manganese(III) acetate is described. In aromatic solvents, in situ generated aryl radicals afford the corresponding biaryls in very good yields. This method works selectively, and yields are better than those from similar, previously described methods. Arylboronic acids carrying sensitive functional groups also work efficiently.
