A palladium-catalyzed 1,2-arylboration of vinylarenes with aryldiazonium tetrafluoroborates and bis­(pinacolato)­diboron has been disclosed. It is reported for the first time that styrene derivatives can be successfully employed as good substrates for 1,2-arylboration of alkenes. Mechanistic studies suggest that no Pd–H reinsertion occurred under our standard conditions, which is the key for the success of this transformation.
