Abstract

1-(3-(Pyridin-2-yl)phenyl)methanamine derivatives have been synthesized and underwent C–H bond activation to afford unsymmetrical NCN′ pincer palladacycles, which were characterised in the solid state. 2-Pyridinyl-phenol and -benzyl alcohols were then used as precursors to unsymmetrical PCN pincer palladacycles. Catalytic applications, where the palladacycle remains in the Pd(II) state, have been carried out and show good activity and selectivity.
