Platinum-catalyzed diborylation of phenylethynyl MIDA boronate with Bpin-Bpin proceeds to yield 1,1,2-triboryl-2-phenylethene with two different classes of the boron functionalities. Sequentially, the obtained 1,1,2-triboryl-2-phenylethene are subjected to Suzuki-Miyaura coupling to introduce a series of aryl groups chemoselectively to afford 1,1-boryl-2,2-diarylethenes.
