Simple, straightforward and optimized procedures for preparing extended pi-conjugated linkers are described. Either unsubstituted or 4-donor substituted pi-linkers bearing a styryl, biphenyl, phenylethenylphenyl, and phenylethynylphenyl pi-conjugated backbone are functionalized with boronic pinacol esters as well as with terminal acetylene moieties allowing their further use as building blocks in Suzuki-Miyaura or Sonogashira coupling reactions.
