The Suzuki-Miyaura reaction performed using a palladium-N-Heterocyclic carbene catalyst and a weak inorganic base
MetadataShow full item record
N-Heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs) have been shown to be useful ligands for the Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling at low catalyst loadings. We now report that the commercially available and air-stable [Pd(IPr)(cin)Cl] pre-catalyst permits the formation of various functionalized biaryls from aryl chlorides and boronic acids (37 examples) under very mild conditions using a mixture of ethanol/water as solvent and an inorganic base.
