Synthesis of Tetrakis(triphenylphosphine)palladium(0) (this post is only for specialists)

Here you will find a link to a video prepared by my lab mate Niels Hammer.

It describes the synthesis of Tetrakis(triphenylphosphine)palladium(0). It is the chemical compound of formula Pd[P(C6H5)3]4, often abbreviated Pd(PPh3)4. It is a bright yellow crystalline solid that becomes brown upon decomposition in air. Pd(PPh3)4 is widely used as a catalyst for palladium-catalyzed coupling reactions.
