(Matrix presented) The palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling of arylsilanols with aryl iodides and aryl bromides (in the presence of cesium carbonate) furnished various biaryl products in high yield. An extensive series of optimizations led to the identification of key variables, including activator, solvent, catalyst, and hydration level, that influence the rate and selectivity of the process. Manipulation of these features provided an effective coupling method of wide scope and generality.
