Suzuki Reaction Performed 8/5/10 Results: 4-bromoacetophenone (.199g), phenylboronic acid (.134g), palladium(II) acetate (.003g), tetrabutylammonium bromide (.323g), and potassium carbonate (.343g) were reacted in heat to form the organic product 4-Acetyl-biphenyl. After recrystalization the product had a weight of .079g and was found to have a melting point of 119.4-120.6°C. The percent yield was 40.3%. Discussion: The reaction was only mildly successful with only a reasonable yield obtained. This lowered yield is likely due to loss of the product while transferring from containers as well as the possibility of the reaction not having been heated to completion, resulting in a lower amount of product formed. The melting point was found to be consistent with that of 4-Acetyl-biphenyl (118-123°C) indicating that the desired product was indeed separated in a pure form. TO separate the final product, several steps were taken. First, the mixture was filtered with a Hirsch funnel to separate the product solids formed after
