In this Letter, the palladium/copper-cocatalyzed arylsilylation of internal alkynes with acyl fluorides and silylboranes is described. This is the first example in which acyl fluorides have been utilized for the three-component coupling reaction via decarbonylation, yielding a variety of tetrasubstituted alkenylsilanes in moderate to good yields.
