Cis-trans isomerisation and solvent reorganisation throughout the reaction are not shown explicitly.
For simplicity animations are shown with PH3 and SnH3 instead of PR3 and SnR3 respectively.
The Kosugi-Migita-Stille reaction, commonly known as the Stille coupling, is the palladium-catalysed coupling of aromatic and vinylic systems using organostannanes.
The mechanism involves the oxidative addition of vinyl or aromatic triflate or halide to give a palladium intermediate, which undergoes a transmetallation reaction (rate-determining step) with the organostannane to give an organopalladium intermediate. This complex then undergoes a reductive elimination step, giving the product and regenerating the palladium(0) catalyst.
