A simple, convenient, and environment-friendly procedure for the preparation of substituted biaryls via Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling­ was developed. The use of arenediazonium tosylates and corresponding boron compounds allows a conversion in neat water in the presence of commercially available Pd(OAc)2 under mild conditions with tolerance to a wide range of functional groups. A procedure particularly useful for the synthesis of di-ortho-substituted biaryls was developed.
