Biaryl monophosphorus ligands containing a 2,3-dihydrobenzo[d][1,3]oxaphosphole framework are highly effective for the palladium-catalyzed Suzuki–Miyaura cross-coupling reactions of a wide range of substrates. Ligand 1 has demonstrated excellent performance for coupling reactions of extremely hindered arylboronic acids.
