In our current work, we have reported the first cobalt-catalyzed cross-coupling of arylboronic acid with alkyl/aryl phosphites under mild conditions. The reaction was carried out in the presence of zinc powder as an additive and ter-pyridine as a ligand. The use of non-precious cobalt salt makes the protocol advantageous, as it is inexpensive and more abundant than the previously used methods where precious metal salts (Pd and Pt) were used. The reaction has a wide substrate scope and the products were obtained in good yields. View Full-Text
