Copper and palladium catalysts are critically important in numerous commercial chemical processes. Improvements in the activity, selectivity and scope of these catalysts could drastically reduce the environmental impact, and increase the sustainability, of chemical reactions. One rapidly developing strategy for...

A novel palladium-catalyzed intramolecular oxidative alkylation of unactivated olefins is described. This protocol was devised to solve one of the drawbacks of the original palladium-catalyzed cycloalkenylation that we developed. We call this new procedure the 'second generation palladium-catalyzed cycloalkenylation'. This...

The iodocyclization of functionally-substituted alkynes provides an excellent way to prepare a wide range of iodoheterocycles, which can then be readily elaborated through palladium-catalyzed Suzuki-Miyaura, Sonogashira, Heck, Hartwig-Buchwald, and carbonylation processes into libraries of medicinally relevant heterocycles. The synthesis of...

Homogeneous transition-metal-catalyzed reactions are indispensable to all facets of modern chemical synthesis. It is thus difficult to imagine that for much of the early 20th century, the reactivity and selectivity of all known homogeneous metal catalysts paled in comparison to...
