Cationic catalysts in HD: Palladium(II) and platinum(II) complexes of pyridinium-substituted bipyridine ligands are highly active and stable catalysts for H/D exchange and oxidation of aromatic CH bonds (TONs up to 3200, TOFs up to 0.1 s−1; see scheme, EWG=electron-withdrawing group, EDG=electron-donating group).
