A novel example of the Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling reaction between sp 3-carbon and sp 3-carbon is described. The reaction of a diborylmethane derivative with allyl halides or benzyl halides proceeded efficiently in the presence of appropriate Pd-catalysts at room temperature. The present approaches provide functionalized homoallylboronates and alkylboronates with excellent regio- and chemoselectivities.
