This company has broadened its range of silicon-based cross-coupling agents to include aryl-, vinyl- and ethynyl silanes, which provide a non-toxic, easily handled, and economical alternative to commonly employed tin and boron cross-coupling derivatives.
agents are useful in a number of synthetic applications. They provide excellent
flexibility for the formation of the carbon-carbon bond, which provides strength
and stability, coupled with carbon’s concatenation capability, to enable the
formation of a number of molecules for use in a range of specialty chemical
applications in plastics, pharmaceuticals, electronics, and coatings, among
other application areas.
