General description

SPhos Pd G2 is a second generation (G2) precatalyst in which phenethylamine based backbone of the (G1) complex is substituted with a biphenyl-based ligand. This improvement on the previous generation allows creating the active palladium species at room temperature with weak phosphate or carbonate bases. The catalyst proves remarkably adept at achieving a variety of Suzuki-Miyaura couplings among other cross-coupling reactions.


Application in Suzuki-Miyaura coupling:
  • Self-arylation of 1-alkyl-3-bromo-2-phenyl-2,1-borazaronaphthalenes to form 2,1-borazaronaphthols.
  • Suzuki–Miyaura coupling of [Ru(bpy)2]+ with 4-carboxyphenylboronic acid.
  • Suzuki–Miyaura coupling of β-borylated porphyrins with 2-iodoaniline.

Multiple tools have been created to ensure your success with kit set up. Start with the more detailed guide to ensure you are comfortable with all of the steps before using the quick guides on the excel worksheet. Remember that while the technique is new, it is still organic chemistry and so the steps will seem easy once you try just one kit. It is just a new way of approaching something you are already very good at.
