Highly Efficient Cross-Coupling Reactions in Mild and Aqueous Media

What is it about?

this project is about Suzuki–Miyaura and Heck–Mizoroki cross-coupling reactions in mild conditions.

Why is it important?

In spite of a great deal of heterogeneous catalytic systems suggested for Suzuki–Miyaura and Heck–Mizoroki cross-coupling reactions to date, furnishing such a reactions in aqueous and also mild conditions is still an essential requirement, especially for more challenging partners due to the performance of side reactions in Suzuki–Miyaura crosscoupling reactions and inherent difculty of Heck–Mizoroki cross-coupling reactions under mild conditions

In this paper, we have synthesized a novel thiophene methanimine-palladium Schiff base complex anchored on decorated γ-Fe2O3 with 2-aminoethyl dihydrogen phosphate (γ-Fe2O3/AEPH2-TC-Pd) as a highly efcient magnetically separable nanocatalyst (Scheme 1). We hoped to conduct these coupling reactions upon mild and aqueous media by means of the existence of nitrogen and sulfur containing ligand in the catalyst structure, which can strongly stabilized the palladium species.
