Lewis acid InBr3-catalyzed arylation of diorgano diselenides and ditellurides with arylboronic acids.
ABSTRACT A novel Lewis acid InBr3-catalyzed direct cross-coupling reaction of arylboronic acids with diorgano diselenides and ditellurides without any additive has been developed. The reactions generated the corresponding unsymmetrical diorgano monoselenides and monotellurides in good to excellent yields. The method has advantages of broad substrate scope, simple operation, mild reaction conditions and high effectiveness. A possible reaction mechanism was proposed.

ABSTRACT: A novel method of photoinduced synthesis of unsymmetrical diaryl selenides from triarylbismuthines and diaryl diselenides has been developed. Although the arylation reactions with triarylbismuthines are usually catalyzed by transition-metal complexes, the present arylation of diaryl diselenides with triarylbismuthines proceeds upon photoirradiation in the absence of transition-metal catalysts. A variety of unsymmetrical diaryl selenides can be conveniently prepared by using this arylation method.Beilstein Journal of Organic Chemistry 01/2013; 9:1141-1147. · 2.80 Impact Factor
