Many boronic acids, including 2-heterocyclic, vinyl, and cyclopropyl derivatives, are inherently unstable, which can limit their benchtop storage and/or efficient cross-coupling. We herein report the first general solution to this problem: in situ slow release of unstable boronic acids from the corresponding air-stable MIDA boronates. This remarkably general approach has transformed all three classes of these unstable boronic acids into shelf-stable and highly effective building blocks for cross-coupling with a wide range of aryl and heteroaryl chlorides.

    • "In the meantime, the intermediate pyridine-2-magnesium can be chemically instable for handling at ambient temperature (Gavryushin et al., 2005; Wang et al., 2009). An alternative way for preparing I is the Suzuki coupling reaction (Knapp et al., 2009; Miyaura & Suzuki, 1979), which shares starting materials with the Negishi reaction but involves different intermediates . It also requires the transformation of compound II into an unstable intermediate pyridin- 2-ylboronic acid or 6-methyl-2-(pyridin-2-yl)-1,3,6,2- dioxazaborocane-4,8-dione prior to cross-coupling with III catalysed using palladium.

    ABSTRACT: In the current study a facile synthetic route for preparing antineoplastic drug GDC-0449 is investigated. Starting with pyridine-1-oxide and 1-iodo-3-nitrobenzene, the intermediate product 2-(2-chloro-5-nitrophenyl) pyridine was prepared by cross-coupling, deoxidation and halogenation. The final compound was then synthesised by reduction of the nitro group followed by amidation. This synthetic route avoids the use of unstable organometallic or organic boride compounds; it employs relatively inexpensive and bench-stable reagents, involves readily controllable reaction conditions, and achieves a relatively high yield.

    ABSTRACT: Repetition does not hurt! New strategies for the modulation of the reactivity of difunctional building blocks are discussed, allowing the palladium-catalyzed controlled iterative cross-coupling and, thus, the efficient formation of complex molecules of defined size and structure (see scheme). As in peptide synthesis, this development will enable the automation of these reactions. M(PG)=protected metal, M(act)=metal.

    ABSTRACT: Wiederholung schadet nicht! Neue Strategien für die Modulierung der Reaktivität von difunktionellen Bausteinen ermöglichen die Pd-katalysierte, kontrollierte iterative Kreuzkupplung und dadurch die effiziente Synthese komplexer Moleküle von definierter Größe und Struktur (siehe Schema). Diese Arbeiten sollten zur Automatisierung dieser Kreuzkupplungen analog zu der Peptidsynthese führen.
