Cover ChemEurJ on mechanistic aspects of the Pd-catalyzed Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling reaction

The journal Chemistry-A European Journal included in the Hot Topic on C-C coupling the recently published review “Mechanistic Aspects of the Palladium-Catalyzed Suzuki-Miyaura Cross-Coupling Reaction”. Among the different reactions that lead to the formation of C-C bonds, the Suzuki-Miyaura approach has a fundamental role, at the level of basic research and industrial applications. In particular, the palladium is usually the metal of the corresponding catalyst. The complexity of the reaction lies in the individual steps of the cycle, as well as in the generation of the catalytically active species. Here, through a chronology from the beginnings of cross coupling, how far the field has come is analyzed.

The work has been carried out by Albert Poater of the Institute of Computational Chemistry and Catalysis of the University of Girona and co-workers. The review was accompanied by a Frontispiece that is dedicated to the memory of Prof. Ei-ichi Negishi and Dan Poater Sidera.
