Copper Catalyzed Amination Kit

(Ullmann reaction)


Product overview:

The Copper catalyzed amination kits  is the ideal tools for the investigation of Ullmann reaction conditions. This enables to conveniently screen multiple reaction conditions simultaneously using pre-weighed catalysts and reagents. We offer pre-selected arrays of precatalysts and salts or custom arrays depending on your needs.
