Abstract

Palladium-catalyzed bond forming reactions, such as the SuzukiMiyaura and Mizoroki-Heck reactions, are some of the most broadly utilized reactions within the chemical industry. These reactions frequently employ hazardous solvents; however, to adhere to increasing sustainability pressures and restrictions regarding the use of such solvents, alternatives are highly sought after. Here we demonstrate the utility of dimethyl isosorbide (DMI) as a bio-derived solvent in several benchmark Pd-catalysed reactions: Suzuki– Miyaura (13 examples, 62–100% yield), Mizoroki–Heck (13 examples, 47– 91% yield), and Sonogashira (12 examples, 65–98% yield).
