A convenient, general and efficient procedure for the synthesis of unsymmetrical diaryl chalcogenides has been developed by the reaction of aryl diazonium fluoroborates and diaryl dichalcogenides in the presence of zinc dust in dimethyl carbonate under microwave irradiation. The reactions of a wide range of substituted aryl diazonium fluoroborates and diaryl dichalcogenides have been addressed. The zinc dust is required for the cleavage of diaryl dichalcogenides. The products are obtained in high purity after fast column chromatography of the crude residue after evaporation of dimethyl carbonate.
