Abstract

In this review we focus on the widely used Suzuki–Miyaura reaction and show that Pd/C is an efficient catalyst for carbon–carbon bond formation. The advantages and limitations of Pd/C are presented through selected examples. Mechanistic as well as practical aspects are also discussed. (© Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
