A practical and efficient synthesis of aryl esters was developed through metal-free oxidation. This reaction employs stable and readily available acyl or sulfonyl chlorides and arylboronic acids as the starting materials and proceeds under mild reaction conditions without additional precious metal catalysts. This new strategy exhibits broad substrate tolerance and operational simplicity and gives diverse aryl esters in moderate to high yields.
