Benefits and Applications

Bis(dibenzylidene acetone)dipalladium is used in the synthesis of pesticides, herbicides and fungicides as well as in the synthesis of APIs (active pharmaceutical ingredients). Bis(dibenzylidene acetone)dipalladium also serves as a catalyst/catalyst precursor for reactions catalyzed by Pd (0). Another area of application is the production of liquid crystals.

Bis(dibenzylidene acetone)dipalladium is used as the catalyst for

  • C-C coupling reactions,
  • C-N coupling reactions,
  • Suzuki coupling reactions,
  • Negishi coupling reactions,
  • Heck coupling reactions
  • Buchwald coupling reactions.

Bis(dibenzylidene acetone)dipalladium is also used as a precursor for the preparation of palladium complex compounds.
