Abstract

Industrial reaction improved: The first monocarbenepalladium(0)-olefin complex has been isolated and characterized (see structure; Pd orange, N green, S yellow, O blue). The complex exhibited unprecedented high catalyst productivity and selectivity for industrially important telomerization reactions (the dimerization of 1,3-dienes in the presence of a nucleophile, in this case an alcohol).
