Combining transition metal catalysis and organocatalysis: a broad new concept for catalysis

Author affiliations

Abstract

In recent years, the concept of combining transition metal catalysis and organocatalysis has emerged as a promising strategy for developing new and valuable reactions, and has attracted considerable attention as it could potentially enable unprecedented transformations not currently possible by use of the transition metal complex or the organocatalyst alone. In this critical review, this strategy is illustrated with several recent outstanding examples, with the aim of shedding light on the synthetic utilities and potentials of this concept as a novel tool in organic synthesis (118 references).
