A method for the coupling of aryl bromides with potassium alkyl trifluoroborates, via nickel/photoredox dual catalysis, has been developed for use in continuous flow. This operationally simple protocol is able to form Csp3–Csp2 bonds with significantly reduced reaction times and a broader substrate scope than when conducted in batch. The utility of this method for rapid analog synthesis has been demonstrated by the synthesis of a small library of alkyl-substituted quinazolines.
