Cu-Pd Dual Catalyst System for Amide Styrylation Reaction from Potassium Styryltrifluoroborates and Amides
Abstract: An interesting reaction procedure for the cross-coupling of potassium styryltrifluoroborates and amides has been developed by using PdCl2(dtbpf)-CuI dual catalyst system. By applying this method, good numbers of amide styrylation products are formed in 85% - 92% yields.
