J Org Chem. 2006 Mar 31;71(7):2854-61.An efficient synthetic route to a sterically crowded 1,8-diheteroarylnaphthalene-derived enantioselective fluorosensor that operates in two different detection modes utilizing fluorescence lifetime and intensity has been developed. Screening of palladium-catalyzed Negishi, Kumada, Suzuki, Hiyama, and Stille coupling methods showed that the latter affords highly congested 1,8-diarylnaphthalenes in superior yields. Read More
