We report a Pd-catalyzed direct cross-coupling of electron-deficient polyfluoroarenes with heteroaromatic tosylates. The notable features of this reaction are its high reaction efficiency, excellent chemoselectivity, operational simplicity, and mild reaction conditions. We have applied this protocol to prepare the semiconducting materials in a highly efficient manner.
