Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Suzuki reaction presents one of the most useful methodologies applied for the synthesis of unsymmetrical biaryls, which are important components for pharmaceutical agents, organic materials and natural products.  Palladium compounds and palladium nanoparticles are today considered as the most active catalysts of Suzuki reaction, however there are also reports indicating on the possibility of successful application of other metals in this process. Moreover, improvement of reaction conditions to more environmentally friendly has been a highly topical field of study.
The aim of this special issue is to present the most actual trends in the area of Suzuki reaction.
Contributions for this issue, both in form of original research and review articles, may cover all aspects of Suzuki reaction e.g. application of Suzuki methodology for the synthesis of functionalized organic molecules and compounds of potential biological activity, new catalysts presenting high activity and selectivity, homogeneous, immobilized and heterogeneous catalysts for the Suzuki reaction, improvement of Suzuki reaction conditions by application of alternative energy sources and green solvents, mechanistic studies and identification of catalytically active species, asymmetric Suzuki reaction, Suzuki reaction as a part of tandem processes.
