Please explain how to calculate theoretical yield of suzuki coupling of 5-iodovanillin and Phenylboronic Acid? MW of Phenylboronic Acid is 121.93g/mol. MW of 5-iodovanillin is 278.04g/mol. MW of product (6-hydroxy-5-methoxy-1,1´-biphenyl-3-carbaldehyde) is 228.2 g/mol.
data from experiment: 3mL of H2O, 1mL of ethanol, 0.498g of amberlite, 0.122g of phenylboronic acid, 0.278g of 5-iodovanillin, .002g Pd, 2.7 mL of ethanol. mass of product was 0.090g
I have no idea how to calculate the theoretical yield since there is so much going on in the experiment. I am not sure what things I include in the calculation and what can be ignored. Please help!
