(Chemical Equation Presented) The cross-coupling of benzylic carbonates with arylboronic acids gave the corresponding diarylmethanes in high yields by use of the palladium catalyst generated in situ from [Pd(n3-C 3H5)Cl]2 and 1,5-bis(diphenylphosphino)pentane (DPPPent). The Suzuki-Miyaura reaction using DPPPent-palladium catalyst is applicable to syntheses of a broad range of functionalized diarylmethanes.
