KitAlysis™ Suzuki-Miyaura Cross-Coupling Reaction Screening Kit

Materials Included in your KITALYSIS-SM-4PAK High-Throughput Screening Kit

Contents in each of the 4 individually sealed Mylar (foil bags):

  • 4 empty reaction vials with lids (to make stock solutions)
  • 24 (6 x4) pre-weighed catalysts in glass vials loaded with stir bars, topped with cap mat.

The screening sets come pre-loaded with 1 µmol of catalyst in each vial according to the following design.


All contents in the foil bag are weighed, plated, packed, and sealed in a glove box under nitrogen.

Ampule Boxes:

  • Toluene: 4 x 2 mL of degassed, anhydrous Sure/Seal™
  • DMAc: 4 x 2 mL of degassed, anhydrous Sure/Seal™
  • THF: 4 x 2 mL of degassed, anhydrous Sure/Seal™
  • n-BuOH: 4 x 2 mL of degassed, anhydrous Sure/Seal™
  • 1.5M aqueous K3PO4: 4 x 2 mL of degassed solution

Internal Standard:

  • Biphenyl (30 mg). To be added to the reaction during the work-up. Recipe for the work-up with the internal standard can be found within the hyperlinked screen types in the "Kit Design" section below.

KitAlysis 24-well Reaction Block Replacement Films-4EA

  • Pack of 4 enables a new film to be used with each kit ensuring a tight, cross-contaminate-free seal every time.

Stir Bars-16 individually packed

  • Fit perfectly into supplied vials to ensure proper stirring of substrate mixtures prior to dosing.

Kit Design

The Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling kit was designed to provide the best possible chance of finding good reaction conditions and is run with:

  • 10 µmol (het)aryl halide
  • 15-20 umol (het)aryl boronate
  • 1 µmol catalyst per vial (1:1 Pd:Ligand); 6 in this system
  • 30 µmol base (1.5M K3PO4)
  • 0.1 M solvent concentration (DMAc, Toluene, n-butanol, and THF)
  • 60 °C

The step-by-step user guide provides instruction for using the kits and an excel sheet for stock solution recipes.

Use of the Provided Tools

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.

Detailed Set-Up User Guide:

The step-by-step user guide is designed for the first-time user and should be read completely before getting started; and used in conjunction with the video. This guide includes trouble-shooting tips, how-to’s for the Labware, and work-up recipes with procedures. Everything you need to set up a kit with confidence every time.

Excel Sheet:

The downloadable excel files are specific to the kit being run and can be found within each Step-by-Step User Guide. They have the following features:

  • Calculations for substrate recipes depending upon the molecular weight of your substrates
  • Quick directions for the more avid user
  • Print button to allow you to take recipe to the lab
  • Contains all info such that they can be can be saved as a pdf and appended to ELN for experimental information
