Cross Coupling

The Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling is an invaluable C-C bond forming reaction, but it can be limited by the availability, isolation and stability of the boronate starting materials. This has led to the development of one-pot borylation/ Suzuki couplings to form sp2–sp2 C-C bonds, where the intermediate boronates are not isolated. Concept Life Sciences and the University of Manchester have developed a novel method for synthesizing substructures that are commonly found in life-changing drug molecules.
