Salts in Organic Solvents: Markets and Applications

These salt solutions are mainly used to perform and enhance C-C cross-coupling and 1,2-addition protocols.

Zinc salts may be used to effect transmetalation in Zn-based cross-coupling reactions, whereas lithium salts increase the solubility of certain Cu-catalysts, such as Cu(I)Cl, Cu(I)CN in Kumada-protocols.

They are applicable in the production of pharmaceutical and agrochemical substances but also in the synthesis of electronic materials, e.g. liquid crystals or conductive polymers.
