Application

Bulky biarylphosphine ligand utilized in the palladium catalyzed Stille cross-coupling reaction.
JohnPhos, a bulky phosphine ligand, was employed as catalyst in the following studies:
  • Hydrophenoxylation of unactivated internal alkynes.
  • Microwave-mediated Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling of benzylic bromides.
  • Pharmaceutical synthesis of novel imidazo[1,2-a]pyridines, having potent activity against the herpes virus.
  • Barluenga′s coupling of vinyl bromides with hydrazines.
  • Pd-catalyzed 2,3-diarylation of α,α-disubstituted-3-thiophenemethanols, via cleavage of C-H and C-C bonds.
Ligand utilized in amination of aryl halides and aryl triflates.

Catalyst for:
  • Decarboxylative cross-coupling of dialkoxybenzoic acids with diaryl disulfides or diaryl diselenides
  • Stereoselective preparation of imidazolidinones via intramolecular hydroamination of N-allylic-N-arylureas
  • Regioselective arylation of olefins with aryl chlorides
  • Cross-coupling reaction for the synthesis of polyunsaturated macrolactones
  • Regioselective O-alkylation reactions
  • Sonogashira-type cross coupling

Buchwald Ligands

The Pd-catalyzed C–N bond formation has become an important synthetic reaction in the past 20 years. Several research groups have investigated this reaction and developed very versatile catalysts. Buchwald and coworkers have been very active in synthesizing and developing a portfolio of phosphine ligands for this transformation and other cross-coupling reactions.
