The oxidative addition of phenyl iodide to the palladium(o) generated from [Pd0(dba)2] and n equivalents of AsPh3 (the most efficient catalytic precursor in Stille reactions) proceeds from [(solv)Pd0(AsPh3)2] (solv= solvent). However, the latter is present only in trace concentrations because it is involved in an equilibrium with the major, but nonreactive… CONTINUE READING
