Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Two new classes of highly active yet air- and moisture-stable π-R-allylpalladium complexes containing bulky biaryl- and bipyrazolylphosphines with extremely broad ligand scope have been developed. Neutral π-allylpalladium complexes incorporated a range of biaryl/bipyrazolylphosphine ligands, while extremely bulky ligands were accommodated by a cationic scaffold. These complexes are easily activated under mild conditions and are efficient for a wide array of challenging C–C and C–X (X = heteroatom) cross-coupling reactions. Their high activity is correlated to their facile activation to a 12-electron-based “L-Pd(0)” catalyst under commonly employed conditions for cross-coupling reactions, noninhibitory byproduct release upon activation, and suppression of the off-cycle pathway to form dinuclear (μ-allyl)(μ-Cl)Pd2(L)2 species, supported by structural (single crystal X-ray) and kinetic studies. A broad scope of C–C and C–X coupling reactions with low catalyst loadings and short reaction times highlight the versatility and practicality of these catalysts in organic synthesis.
