General description

Palladium(II) chloride is a widely used starting material for preparing other palladium catalysts, reagents, and nanoparticles.

Application

Application Guide for Palladium Catalyzed Cross-Coupling Reactions

Used in the synthesis of semiconducting metal-containing polymers in which the polypyrrole backbone has a conformational energy minimum and is nearly planar.
Palladium(II) chloride (PdCl2) can be used as a catalyst in the following processes:
  • PdCl2-CuCl2 catalytic system is used in the selective acetylation of 1o and 2o alkyl or aryl alcohols with vinyl acetate to prepare corresponding acetylated derivatives.
  • PdCl2–EDTA is used in the Suzuki cross-coupling reaction between aryl and heteroaryl halides with aryl(heteroaryl)boronic acids in water.
  • PdCl2-Cu(OAc)2 is used to synthesize polysubstituted pyrroles from phenethylamines via multiple deprotonations and deamination reactions.
  • PdCl2-PEG(300) is used in the Suzuki-Miyaura coupling reaction.
  • PdCl2-NaBH4 is used in the hydrogenation of carbon-carbon triple bonds to synthesize corresponding cis-alkenes in a polyethylene glycol-CH2Cl2 reaction medium.
  • PdCl2-(n-Bu)3N-NH4OOCH catalytic system is used in the synthesis of benzofurans via intramolecular Heck reaction.
For small-scale and high throughput uses, the product is also available as ChemBeads (919853)
