Abstract

Palladium-catalyzed oxidative carbon–carbon bond-forming annulations, that is, carbocyclization reactions, have recently emerged as efficient and atom-economical routes to carbo- and heterocycles, whereby less functionalized substrates and fewer synthetic steps are needed to obtain a target molecule compared with traditional non-oxidative carbon–carbon bond-forming reactions. In this review, the synthetic efforts in palladium-catalyzed oxidative carbocyclization reactions are summarized.
