Reaction information

*#Reaction file
*Reaction file type CDX
*Procedure A 100 mL Schlenk flask containing 4-bromobenzonitrile (1.456 g, 8.00 mmol), PdCl2 (71 mg, 0.40 mmol, 5 mol%), PPh3 (210 mg, 0.80 mmol, 10 mol%) and CuI (76 mg, 0.40 mmol, 5 mol%) was evacuated and refilled with argon before adding distilled THF (60 mL), TEA (3.34 mL, 2.428 g, 24.00 mmol, 3.00 eq.) and TMSA (1.70 mL, 1.178 g, 12.00 mmol, 1.50 eq.) dropwise. The reaction mixture was stirred at r.t. for 3 h and the disappearance of starting material monitored by TLC. The solvent was evaporated and the solid was dissolved in DCM; filtration through silica and evaporation of the solvent afforded the crude title compound (1.820 g) as black oil. The pure product (1.410 g, 7.07 mmol, yield 88%) was obtained by column chromatography on silica gel using (4/1) hexane/DCM as eluent (Rf 0.15).
*Yield (%) 88 %
*Type of Yield Isolated pure product
