Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

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.

A method for synthesis without protecting groups of bis(indolyl)methanes by the (η3-benzyl)palladium system generated from a palladium catalyst and benzyl alcohol in water is developed. This domino protocol involves C3–H bond activation/benzylation of indole–carboxylic acids and benzylic C–H functionalization. Mechanistic studies indicate that the (η3-benzyl)palladium(II) complex, which is formed via oxidative addition of benzyl alcohol 2 to a Pd(0) species, activates the C–H bond at the C3-position of indole 1. Notably, water plays an important role in our catalytic system for sp3 C–O bond activation and stabilization of OH by hydration for the smooth generation of the activated Pd(II) cation species, as well as for nucleophilic attack of indoles to hydrated benzyl alcohols.

In this review, we summarize our recent development of palladium(0)-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions of perfluoro organic compounds with organometallic reagents. The oxidative addition of a C–F bond of tetrafluoroethylene (TFE) to palladium(0) was promoted by the addition of lithium iodide, affording a trifluorovinyl palladium(II) iodide. Based on this finding, the first palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling reaction of TFE with diarylzinc was developed in the presence of lithium iodide, affording α,β,β-trifluorostyrene derivatives in excellent yield. This coupling reaction was expanded to the novel Pd(0)/PR3-catalyzed cross-coupling reaction of TFE with arylboronates. In this reaction, the trifluorovinyl palladium(II) fluoride was a key reaction intermediate that required neither an extraneous base to enhance the reactivity of organoboronates nor a Lewis acid additive to promote the oxidative addition of a C–F bond. In addition, our strategy utilizing the synergetic effect of Pd(0) and lithium iodide could be applied to the C–F bond cleavage of unreactive hexafluorobenzene (C6F6), leading to the first Pd(0)-catalyzed cross-coupling reaction of C6F6 with diarylzinc compounds.

Pd-catalyzed, site-selective mono-cross-coupling of substrates with two identical halo groups is a useful method for synthesizing substituted monohalogenated arenes. Such arenes constitute an important class of compounds, which are commonly identified as drug components and synthetic intermediates. Traditionally, these site-selective reactions have been realized in a “substrate-controlled” manner, which is based on the steric and electronic differences between the two carbon-halogen bonds of the substrate. Recently, an alternative strategy, “catalyst-controlled” site-selective cross-coupling, has emerged. In this strategy, the preferred reaction site of a dihaloarene can be switched, merely by changing the catalyst used. This type of selective reaction further expands the utility of Pd-catalyzed cross-coupling. In this review, we summarize the reported examples of catalyst-controlled site-selectivity switching in Pd-catalyzed cross-coupling of dihaloarenes. Full article

In this review, we summarize recent progress from our group with regard to Pd-catalyzed oxidative amination of alkenes with amines. Intermolecular oxidative amination of alkenes with secondary anilines was induced using a palladium-complex catalyst combined with molybdovanadophosphate as a co-catalyst under dioxygen, leading to allylic amines and enamines in good yields with high selectivities. The reaction proceeded efficiently, using molecular oxygen as the terminal oxidant. In addition, palladium-catalyzed oxidative amination of alkenes with anilines as primary amines was achieved using molecular oxygen as the sole oxidant, producing (Z)-N-alkenyl-substituted anilines in high yields.
