The purpose of this work is the design, synthesis and characterization of thiosemicarbazone ligands bearing a phenyl boronic acid functionality. The main interest is the synthesis of organopalladium compounds with the boronic acid included within the corresponding molecule. These could lead to further modification of the properties of the organometallic species applicable to the Suzuki-Miyaura reaction.
The ligands were prepared by reaction of acetylphenylboronic acid with several thiosemicarbazides. The compounds were characterized by IR, 1H and 31P NMR spectroscopy.
