Application

4,4′-Di-tert-butyl-2,2′-dipyridyl can be used as a ligand:      
  • In the synthesis of oxidovanadium(IV) complex [VOCl2(dbbpy)(H2O)], which is used as a catalyst for the epoxidation of cyclooctene in the presence of tert-butyl hydroperoxide.     
  • In iron-catalyzed ortho-allylation of 1-arylpyrazoles via C-H activation.     
  • In iridium-catalyzed borylation of (hetero)arenes.      
  • In iron-catalyzed arylation of heterocycles in the presence of metallic Mg.      
  • In nickel-catalyzed decarboxylation of block copolymers.

Articles

Arylboronic acids and esters are invaluable tools for the chemical community. These powerful reagents are used for a variety of transformations, most notably the Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling reaction.

We presents an article about a micro review of reversible addition/fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization. RAFT (Reversible Addition/Fragmentation Chain Transfer) polymerization is a reversible deactivation radical polymerization (RDRP) and one of the more versatile methods for providing living characteristics to radical polymerization.

Protocols

We presents an article featuring procedures that describe polymerization of methyl methacrylate and vinyl acetate homopolymers and a block copolymer as performed by researchers at CSIRO.

We present an article about RAFT, or Reversible Addition/Fragmentation Chain Transfer, which is a form of living radical polymerization.

Polymerization via ATRP procedures demonstrated by Prof. Dave Haddleton's research group at the University of Warwick.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
