Abstract

A range of alkenylboronic acids undergo Suzuki cross-coupling with aryl bromides in good yields in the presence of [PdCl(C3H5)]2/cis,cis,cis-1,2,3,4-tetrakis[(diphenylphosphanyl)methyl]cyclopentane as a catalyst. A wide variety of 1-arylprop-1-enes, 2-arylprop-1-enes, 2-arylbut-1-enes and 1,1-diarylethylene or styrene derivatives have been prepared. Moreover, the reaction tolerates several functions, such as acetyl, formyl, nitrile or nitro. Furthermore, this catalyst can be used at low loading, even for reactions of sterically hindered substrates. (© Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, 69451 Weinheim, Germany, 2004)
