Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


(Chemical Equation Presented) A mild and general method for the palladium-catalyzed vinylation of aryl bromides has been developed. The use of tetrabutylammonium fluoride (TBAF) as the activator and an inexpensive and nontoxic vinyl donor, 1,3,5,7-tetramethyl-1,3,5,7-tetravinylcyclotetrasiloxane (D4V, 1), allows for a general and high-yielding preparation of substituted styrenes.
