Ni/Cu-cocatalyzed decarbonylative silylation of acyl fluorides with silylboranes has been developed to afford various arylsilanes with high efficiency and good functional-group compatibility via carbon-fluorine bond cleavage and carbon-silicon bond formation. Such transformation can not only extend the functionalization type of acyl fluorides but complement the synthetic route for arylsilanes.
