Soluble in chloroform, dichloromethane, alcohol and pentane. Insoluble in water.


1,1'-Bis(diphenylphosphino)ferrocene acts as a ligand in homogeneous catalysis. It is used as a ligand for ruthenium-catalyzed greener amine synthesis from amines and alcohols by hydrogen-borrowing. It is also employed as a ligand for Buchwald-Hartwig cross coupling. Further, it is used in the synthesis of coordination compound as well as the formation of complexes with various metals such as palladium chloride. In addition to this, it serves as a reagent for palladium-catalyzed coupling reactions and also plays an important role in Suzuki reaction.


Air sensitive. Store in a cool place. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents.
