Abstract

We report the synthesis and characterization of novel anionic arylfluoroborate, three-coordinate ligated arylcopper(I) and cationic ligated copper(I) complexes. We show through in situ 19F NMR monitoring that neutral arylboronate ester is more kinetically competent than anionic arylfluoroborate for transmetalation with (PN)CuF (PN = o-(di-tert-butylphosphino)-N,N-dimethylaniline). The transmetalation of the neutral arylboronate ester proceeds via a two-step process involving a cationic copper(I) species wherein an anionic arylfluoroborate is generated in situ as a competent aryl group transferring reagent.
