Final Report - POLYPALLADATEDARENES (Polypalladated arenes: synthesis, characterization and reactivity. Applications in organic synthesis)

Project ID: 219687
Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE

Abstract

The organometallic chemistry of palladium is a research field of great importance and enormous potential worldwide, mainly due to its applications in organic synthesis. Arylpalladium complexes are especially important, as they are involved in many catalytic carbon-carbon and carbon-heteroatom bond forming reactions. It is commonly observed that the presence of a suitable substituent in ortho to the Pd atom influences the reactivity of the complex and the formation of organic compounds.

In this project, European researchers aimed to extend this successful chemistry to polypalladated arene complexes of general formula [1,3,5-C6R3(PdXL2)n], where n=1-3 and R is a functionalised organic group. Possible applications of this research in the development of catalytic processes in organic synthesis will be pursued as well.

The project also involves the extensive application of modern nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) techniques to the structural characterisation of the products, as well as to the investigation of dynamic processes, reaction mechanisms and, in general, to the resolution of problems in organometallic chemistry. The report includes graphic representations of the chemical schemes.
