Heck reactions: a caveat on the use of palladium(II) PCP-type catalysts Academic Article uri icon


  • A PCP-type catalyst was prepared and examined within the context of intramolecular Heck reactions. A substrate possessing a 1,4-diene system effectively poisoned the PCP catalyst leading to no reaction. This behavior contrasts with the typical palladium(0) catalyst system.
