General description

Bis(triphenylphosphine)palladium(II) dichloride is an organometallic complex. It is an efficient cross-coupling catalyst for C-C coupling reaction, such as Negishi coupling, Suzuki coupling, Sonogashira coupling and Heck coupling reaction. Detection of bis(triphenylphosphine)palladium(II) dichloride by electrospray ionization quadrupole ion trap mass spectrometry using different imidazolium salts as the charge carrier has been reported. It is employed as catalyst for the Heck reaction medium.


Application Guide for Palladium Catalyzed Cross-Coupling Reactions

Bis(triphenylphosphine)palladium(II) dichloride was employed in the following studies:
• As model catalyst for the evaluation of functionalized silica′s for the adsorptive recovery of homogeneous catalysts, via its interaction with metal centre.
• As catalyst in the synthesis of diphenylacetylene.
• One-pot synthesis of furoquinolines, via Pd-catalyzed Sonogashira coupling followed by Cu(I) catalyzed ring closure.
• Catalyst for Sonogashira coupling of aryl alkynes to 2-bromothiazole and 2-bromothiophene.
