Come together, right now: Acyltrifluoroborates and O-benzoyl hydroxylamines come together to form amides in water (see scheme). The ligations are complete within minutes at room temperature and do not require any reagents or catalysts. The reaction has a broad substrate scope and tolerates unprotected functional groups.
