Alkyne Cross-Coupling Pre-Print Now Online

In collaboration with Boehringer-Ingelheim (BI), we describe a method for palladium-catalyzed regio- and stereoselective cross-coupling of terminal alkynes with internal alkynes bearing various proximal directing groups. The transformation is enabled by a tailored P,N-ligand that was previously developed at BI for applications in asymmetric catalysis. Congrats to project lead, Mingyu, who started the project during an internship at BI, and to other co-workers from Scripps (Tianhua, Omar, and Rei) and BI (Carl, Bo, Dan, Olga, Chris, and Jeff)!
