MSE PRO™ Palladium dipivalate, ≥98.0% Purity

MSE PRO™ Palladium dipivalate serves as a source of the Pd(II) catalyst. Upon reaction with a suitable ligand (e.g., phosphines, N-heterocyclic carbenes), the pivalate ligands are displaced, generating the active catalytic species. The palladium center then undergoes oxidative addition, migratory insertion, and reductive elimination steps to facilitate the desired cross-coupling or C-H activation reaction. The pivalate ligands are relatively labile and can be easily replaced by other ligands, making palladium dipivalate a versatile precatalyst.

MSE Supplies offers various catalysts and ligands of coupling reaction. Please contact us for customization or bulk orders.
