InChI key



cataCXium® A Pd G3 is a Buchwald third generation precatalyst that can be used in:
  • Direct ortho-arylation of pyridinecarboxylic acids.
  • Catalyzing Suzuki–Miyaura cross-coupling in the synthesis of 1-heteroaryl-3-azabicyclo3.1.0hexanes.
  • Palladium-catalyzed carbonylative carboperfluoroalkylation of alkynes.
  • Suzuki–Miyaura coupling reaction of geminal bis(boryl)cyclopropanes in the synthesis of various gem-disubstituted cyclopropanes.
