Suzuki Cross-coupling


Mechanism [1]:

Specific example [2]:

Highlights and Significance:

  1. Suzuki cross-coupling has high predictability and operational-simplicity. [3]
  2. Suzuki cross-coupling is widely used on the formation of C-C bonds in medicinal chemistry. [4]
  3. Suzuki cross-coupling is used to synthesize lots of relatively flat molecules. [5]
  4. Suzuki cross-coupling has low cost in commercial due to the reusability of catalyst. [6]
