Abstract

Transition metal-catalyzed C–C bond formations have been well studied over the last four decades. An improved mechanistic understanding of such reactions has helped chemists to develop further improvements, modifications and even new reactions. In the area of transition metal-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions the C–S bond cleaving reactions have attracted a lot of attention in the last decade as they provide a good alternative to the use of organo-halide reagents in traditional cross-coupling reactions. The availability of a wide range of organo-sulfur species provides the opportunity for developing different transformations for the synthesis of interesting organic compounds. This tutorial review focuses on recent examples of the transition metal-catalyzed C–C bond forming reactions using organo-sulfur species.
