Internal borylation occurs upon activation of aryl di-isopropylphosphinite boranes with HNTf2 to give heterocyclic intermediates that can be reductively quenched to afford 6 or treated with KHF2 to give the phenolic potassium aryl trifluoroborate salts 10. The latter salts are useful for Pd-catalyzed coupling with aryl iodides under Molander conditions, provided that precautions are taken to remove the KNTf2 byproduct from the preceding KHF2 step.
