A method for the efficient and reliable synthesis of aryl nitriles via the Cu2O-catalyed cross-coupling of aryl boronic acids or esters and TMSCN is presented. The room temperature operation paired with the use of cheap, readily available, and halogen-free Cu2O as catalysts makes the protocol an appealing option for aryl cyanations.
