Estas reaes de acoplamento so gerais e so realizadas com diteluretos de diarila e sais de ariltrifluoroborato de potssio contendo substituintes neutros, retiradores e doadores de eltrons, fornecendo os correspondentes teluretos de diarila no simtricos em rendimentos de bons a excelentes. We present here results of the cross-coupling reaction of diaryl ditellurides with potassium aryltrifluoroborate salts using a catalytic amount of Cu(OAc) 2 and bypiridine in DMSO/H 2 O under air atmosphere. This cross-coupling reaction is general and was performed with diaryl ditellurides and potassium aryltrifluoroborate salts bearing electron-withdrawing, electron-donating and neutral substituents, affording the corresponding unsymmetrical diaryl tellurides in good to excellent yields. Keywords: tellurium, trifluoroborate salts, copper catalysis Introduction Chalcogenide compounds have become attractive synthetic targets because of their chemo-, regio-, and stereoselective reactions, 1-4 used in a wide variety of functional groups, thus avoiding protection group chemistry and resulting in useful biological activities. 5-7 Therefore, many classes of organotellurium compounds have been prepared and studied to date and aryl- or vinylic tellurides are certainly the most useful and promising compounds in view of their usefulness in organic synthesis. 8-11 A large number of methodologies have been reported to prepare these compounds. 4,9-11 However, limited synthetic methods are reported to synthesize unsymmetrical diaryl tellurides. In recent years, a transition-metal-catalyzed reaction of diaryl dichalcogenides with aryl halides or boronic acids has become a versatile tool for synthesis of unsymmetrical diaryl chalcogenides. 12-17 Recently, Taniguchi 12 described the preparation of numerous unsymmetrical organotellurides by reaction of organoboronic acids with ditellurides via cleavage of Te-Te bond by a copper catalyst....
