Recent advances in heterobimetallic catalysis across a “transition metal–tin” motif

Author affiliations

Abstract

Heterobimetallic catalysts, bearing a metal–metal bond between a transition metal (TM) and a tin atom, are very promising due to their ability in mediating a wide variety of organic transformations. Indeed the utilization of such catalysts is a challenging and evolving area in the field of homogeneous catalysis. Catalysis across a ‘TM–Sn’ motif is an emerging area in the broader domain of multimetallic catalysis. The present review apprises the chemists' community of the past, present and future scope of this versatile catalytic motif. The TM–Sn catalyzed reactions presented include, among others, Friedel–Crafts alkylation, carbonylation, polymerization, cyclization, olefin metathesis, Heck coupling, hydroarylation Michael addition and tandem coupling. The mechanistic aspects of the reactions have been highlighted as well.
