ABSTRACT A simple and efficient hemilabile-type phosphine ligand, found to be highly effective in Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling of aryl chlorides with generally low Pd-catalyst loading (0.05%), was prepared in one step based on an economically attractive approach from commercially available benzamide starting material.

    ABSTRACT: The Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling reaction of 1-aryltriazenes with arylboronic acids catalyzed by a recyclable polymer-supported Pd-NHC complex catalyst has been realized for the first time. The polymer-supported catalyst can be re-used several times still retaining high activity for this transformation. Various aryltriazenes were investigated as electrophilic substrates at room temperature to give biaryls in good to excellent yields and showed good chemoselectivity over aryl halides in the reactions.

    ABSTRACT: The Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling of unprotected, nitrogen-rich heterocycles using precatalysts P1 or P2 is reported. The procedure allows for the reaction of variously substituted indazole, benzimidazole, pyrazole, indole, oxindole and azaindole halides under mild conditions in good to excellent yields. Additionally, the mechanism behind the inhibitory effect of unprotected azoles on Pd-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions is described based on evidence gained through experimental, crystallographic, and theoretical investigations.

    ABSTRACT: Palladium-catalysed Suzuki–Miyaura cross-couplings of organoboronic acids or organotrifluoroborates with aryl and alkenyl halides or triflates have become classic methods for generating carbon–carbon bonds. For this reaction, not only sp2-hybridized but also sp3-hybridized organoboron derivatives can be employed. However, alkylboronic acids or trifluoroborates are generally less reactive than arylboron derivatives. The coupling of primary alkylboronic acids or alkyltrifluoroborates with aryl or alkenyl halides is well known, and the reaction gives the coupling products with high selectivities, relatively high turnover numbers and in good yields with several catalysts. On the other hand, secondary alkylboronic acids or trifluoroborates, except for cyclopropylboron derivatives, are much less reactive, and very few catalyst are able to activate such compounds. Because of the hybridization of cyclopropanes, which confers significant aromatic character, several reactions have successfully been performed with cyclopropylboronic acids or trifluoroborates. The stereochemistries of substituted cyclopropylboron derivatives were maintained in the course of the reactions. For all these couplings with primary or secondary alkylboron derivatives, aryl iodides, bromides, chlorides or triflates and alkenyl iodides, bromides or triflates were employed. Alkenyl chlorides have attracted less attention. The reactions with alkenyl halides are stereoselective. A few examples of couplings between sp3-hybridized organoboronic acids and alkyl halides have also been reported.(© Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, 69451 Weinheim, Germany, 2008)
