Abstract

The aerobic, room-temperature coupling of tetramethylammonium trifluoromethylselenate with readily available boronic acids, boronic esters, and terminal alkynes has been developed. The method permits direct access to valuable trifluoromethylselenoarenes and alkynes under mild conditions. A convenient one-pot reaction, a scale up procedure as well as an extension to perfluoroalkylselenates are also presented to further demonstrate the synthetic utility of this reaction.
