(Figure presented) The first general examples of palladium-catalyzed Suzuki-type cross-coupling of aryl and heteroaryl mesylates with potassium aryl and heteroaryltrifluoroborates are presented. In addition to biaryl couplings, the cross-coupling reactions of aryl mesylates with alkyl and vinyltrifluoroborate salts have also been successfully accomplished.
