CX93 is a catalyst for C-C and C-N coupling reaction. Pd(dppf)Cl2
may be used as an effective palladium catalyst in the following reactions:-
- Cross-coupling of sec-alkyl and n-alkyl Grignard reagents with high yield and selectivity.
- Suzuki coupling of aryl boronic esters with [11C]methyl iodide to form functionalized [11C]toluene derivatives.
- Kumada cross-coupling of 1,3,5-tribromobenzene with Grignard reagents to form star-shaped oligothiophenes.
