Palladium is definitely one of the most important transition metals in organic synthesis. The significance of palladium catalysts is evident by the fact that the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2010 was awarded to Richard F. Heck, Ei-ichi Negishi, and Akira Suzuki “for palladium-catalyzed cross couplings in organic synthesis”. Though the cross coupling chemistry emerged during the 1970s, this research field is still evolving and considerable attention is being given to investigate new catalytic reactions such as stereo- and site-selective cross coupling, reactions with less reactive leaving groups, and cross coupling at C-H positions. This special issue will cover significant development in the exciting field of palladium-catalyzed cross coupling.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Catalysts is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
