Palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions are state-of-the art methods for synthesis of many important compounds. The development of the use of the phenol-derived sulfonated hydroxyl group in the coupling reactions is highly attractive as the hydroxyl group is commonly present in organic compounds and they are versatile alternatives to aryl halides in cross-coupling reactions. In this tutorial review, we summarize the current development of palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions of aryl mesylates.
