A mild and general protocol for the carbonylative cross-coupling of sterically hindered ortho-disubstituted aryl iodides is reported. Carbonylative Suzuki−Miyaura couplings of a variety of aryl boronic acids provide an array of substituted biaryl ketones in modest to excellent yield. A carbonylative Negishi coupling that utilizes alkynyl nucleophiles is also described.
