Palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling between 2,3-naphthoxadisilole and aryl halides in the presence of tetrabutylammonium fluoride afforded 2-aryl naphthalenes. This is first report that oxadisilole served as a partner in the palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions. The reaction mechanism was also studied.
