Herein, we report an efficient, ligand-free, and additive-free Suzuki-Miyaura coupling that is compatible with the aromatic sulfonyl fluoride functional group. The protocol proceeds at room temperature, on water, and offers facile access to a wide range of biaryl sulfonyl fluorides as bioorthogonal "click" reagents.
