Abstract

The first monocarbenepalladium(0) complexes with benzoquinone and naphthoquinone as additional ligands have been prepared. As demonstrated by NMR spectroscopy and X-ray analysis, the complexes show a unique coordination mode giving quinone-bridged dimers. The monocarbenepalladium(0) complexes allow efficient cross-coupling reactions of aryldiazonium salts with olefins (Heck reaction) and arylboronic acids (Suzuki reaction).
