(Chemical Equation Presented) Aryl mesylates are found to be applicable as electrophiles in organosilicon-mediated coupling reactions. The catalyst system comprising 2 mol % of Pd(OAc)2 and CM-phos supporting ligand is highly effective in catalyzing Hiyama cross-coupling of various aryl and heteroaryl mesylates. Interesting acid additive effects show that the presence of 0.25-0.50 equiv of acetic acid efficiently suppresses the mesylate decomposition and generally promotes the coupling product yields.
