Project Title

Borylation of Arenes Catalyzed by Silica-supported Iridium Complexes

Project Description

The metal catalyzed direct functionalization of aromatic C-H bonds is a straightforward method for the formation of carbon-carbon and carbon-heteroatom bonds in organic synthesis. Catalytic C-H borylation of arenas has allowed efficient synthesis of various borylated arenes, which are versatile synthetic intermediates. Our goal is trying to develop a new silica-supported iridium system. We envision that such a supported iridium complex would be useful in creating a highly active catalytic environment for C-H bond functionalizations.
