The reaction worked great under the conditions I gave!! Thanks for all the help. The issue is still that it worked well with 10% mole excess THP protected alcohol. Have to do the next two steps (deprotection, dissolved metal reduction) and then will distill. Thanks again for all the help.
The story here is that I am doing some contract work for my old job and somebody took a teacahing gig half way through a synthesis of 300 g of a material. I already had the THP ether and need to just go forward with it. But....DO NOT GET ME STARTED on palladium cross couplings. I have been for years trying to get my bosses to do this type of chemistry as opposed to "old school" SN2 type reactions that may or may not work.....trust me I know that it is ALWAYS a solution.....especially nowadays.
