Abstract

Palladium-catalysed processes for the formation of carboncarbon bonds, i.e., coupling reactions of organic halides (R1X) and main-group organometallic compounds (R2M) are most frequently applied in synthesizing biologically and pharmaceutically important organic molecules. In this article, we provide a critical review on theoretical studies of the palladium-catalysed carboncarbon cross-coupling reactions, and give an up-to-date summary of the current understanding of the cross-coupling reactions from a theoretical point of view (108 references).
