In this review article Min Shi and colleagues from the Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry and the East China University of Science and Technology, China, review the developments and advances in palladium-catalyzed asymmetric additions over the last five years.
Pd-catalyzed additions are key reactions to access a range of important intermediate compounds. Here, Shi summarises the developments in Pd-catalyzed 1,2-additions, 1,4-additions and asymmetric cycloadditions. These reactions are powerful, well-established tools for the stereoselective construction of C–C and C–X (X = O or N) bonds.
