Palladium-catalyzed reactions are of vital importance in organic synthesis. Palladium catalysts have played a fundamental role in the development of a wide variety of transformations due to its versatility and high functional group tolerance. Indeed, palladium-catalyzed reactions are nowadays routinely employed as powerful synthetic tools both in academia and industry. Particularly interesting have resulted the advances in new catalyst development which has enable to perform difficult transformations with unactivated substrates using low catalyst loadings under mild and green reaction conditions.
This special issue will mainly focus on the latest advances and novel trends in the field of palladium catalysts ranging from the basic research and characterization studies to the development of highly active catalysts and their application in different redox processes, cross-coupling as well as C-H activation reactions.
