Definitions for suzuki reaction
This page provides all possible meanings and translations of the word suzuki reaction
The organic reaction of an aryl- or vinyl-boronic acid with an aryl- or vinyl-halide or pseudohalide, such as triflates, catalyzed by a palladium(0) complex, widely used to synthesize polyolefins, styrenes, and substituted biphenyls.
Origin: Named for the discoverer, Akira Suzuki.
The Suzuki reaction is the organic reaction of an aryl- or vinyl-boronic acid with an aryl- or vinyl-halide catalyzed by a palladium complex, which can also be in the form of a nanomaterial-based catalyst. It is widely used to synthesize poly-olefins, styrenes, and substituted biphenyls, and has been extended to incorporate alkyl bromides. Several reviews have been published. The reaction also works with pseudohalides, such as triflates, instead of halides. Boronic esters and organotrifluoroborate salts may be used instead of boronic acids. First published in 1979 by Akira Suzuki, the Suzuki reaction couples boronic acids to halides. The reaction relies on a palladium catalyst such as tetrakispalladium to effect part of the transformation. The palladium catalyst is 4-coordinate, and usually involves phosphine supporting groups. The 2010 Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded in part to Suzuki for his discovery and development of this reaction. In many publications this reaction also goes by the name Suzuki–Miyaura reaction. It is also often referred to as "Suzuki Coupling".
