ABSTRACT

An efficient one-pot C-H activation/borylation/oxidation protocol for the preparation of phenols is described. This method is particularly attractive for the generation of meta-substituted phenols bearing ortho-/para-directing groups, as such substrates are difficult to access by other phenol syntheses.
