Pd(PPh3)2Cl2

[Bis(triphenylphosphine)palladium(II) Dichloride]


Other Names:

Dichlorobis(triphenylphosphine)palladium(II)

Bis(triphenylphosphine)dichloropalladium(II)

Palladium(II)bis(triphenylphosphine) dichloride

trans-Dichlorobis(triphenylphosphine)palladium(II)



General Information:


Structure:



CAS Number: 13965-03-2

Molecular Weight: 701.90 g/mol

Appearance: Yellow solid


Pd(PPh3)2Cl2 is a catalyst commonly employed in palladium catalyzed reactions such as Suzuki reactions, Sonogashira reactions, Heck reactions, etc. Pd(PPh3)2Cl2 is generally more stable at room temperature and has a longer shelf-life than Pd(PPh3)4.




Common Uses:


Catalyst in palladium catalyzed reactions (ex. Suzuki)



Procedure excerpt:

. . . then N2 was bubbled through the mixture. Pd(Ph3)2Cl2 (0.008 g, 0.012 mmol) was added and the mixture was flushed again with N2. The reaction mixture was . . .
