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.
