The Fluorous Biphase Catalysis Kit for C–C-Couplings contains perfluoro-tagged Pd-catalysts and solvents for up to 10 different catalytic reactions under fluorous biphasic conditions. To get acquainted with this innovative FBC technology our kit provides detailed descriptions of procedures for two C–C-coupling reactions (Suzuki and Stille coupling),1,2 all substrates and reagents necessary for these two model reactions, and eight additional preparations. Analytical methods and spectra are also given as references. FBC technology allows the catalyst to be easily recovered and to be used for further syntheses.
