How can we close uphill catalytic cycles?
We aim to develop a wide range of catalytic systems to convert C-H bonds into diverse carbon-carbon and carbon-heteroatom bonds. Essential for optimum step-economy in synthesis is the appropriate choice of tools for making different bonds.
We have largely focused on four catalytic systems using Pd metal: Pd(II)/Pd(0), Pd(II)/Pd(IV), Pd(II)/Pd(II), and Pd(0)/Pd(II). Each has distinct advantages.
