Palladium-catalyzed homo-coupling of heteroaryldimethylsulfoniums proceeds in the presence of bis(pinacolato)diboron and a base to yield biheteroaryls. The homo-coupling involves palladium-catalyzed borylation and the subsequent Suzuki-Miyaura coupling. As the sulfoniums were able to be prepared in situ from the corresponding heteroaryl sulfides and methyl triflate, one-pot transformations of heteroaryl sulfides into the homo-coupling products were executed. Furthermore, a facile synthesis of a highly substituted 2,2'-bibenzofuran was accomplished with a combination of Pummerer-type synthesis of 2-benzofuryl sulfide and the present homo-coupling.
