Abstract

Substantially more active iron catalysts for a standard Negishi cross-coupling are obtained when bis(diarylphosphino)thiophenes are employed in place of the benchmark ligand bis(diphenylphosphino)benzene. The thiophene ligands have the advantages of ease of synthesis and ready modification.
