It used the selective replacement of all the primary hydroxyl groups of [beta]-cyclodextrin by the reaction of iodine and triphenylphosphane in DMF.
The cis-deprotonation mechanism of the cis-Pd[([PPh.sub.3]).sub.2](Ph)Br complex (Scheme 2, II) starts with the dissociation of the triphenylphosphane ligand in the cis-position to the phenyl group from complex 10 and the formation of the cis-Pd([PPh.sub.3])(Ph)Br complex (Scheme 2, 19).
