Synthetic chemists’ interest in photocatalysis has grown dramatically over the last decade, with an increasing number of leading research groups contributing innovative new methods and applications for utilizing visible light in organic synthesis.
The PhotoKitAlysis Reaction Kit was designed to provide the best possible chance of finding good reaction conditions for cross-coupling reactions: pre-weighed base or base solution (provided), 10–20 mmol coupling partner (user supplied), 10 mmol aryl halide substrate (user supplied), Catalysts
While Markovnikov alkene reactivity is very well developed and utilized commonly in the synthesis of commodity and research chemicals, catalytic access to the anti-Markovnikov-selective adducts is a much less-developed endeavor.
Csp2- and Csp-hybridized coupling reactions are established catalytic approaches. However, multi-step Csp3- and Csp2-coupling reactions of boronic acids and related derivatives are still limited by ineffective two-electron transmetalation reactions.
