Abstract

Styrenes were coupled with 3-iodolawsone in PEG-400 at 90 °C, leading stereoselectively to (E)-stilbene-quinone hybrids through Heck reactions. The best reaction conditions were found to be the use of NaOH (3 equiv) and 10 mol% of palladium acetate at 90 °C for 15 minutes. The chemical yields of the Heck reactions using styrenes with electron-withdrawing groups (65–98%) were greater than styrenes bearing electron-donating groups (7–32%) on the aromatic ring. In particular, the chemical yields of Heck reactions involving nitrostyrenes were the best ones observed.
