Protodepalladation Review Online

Several of the directed hydrofunctionalization reactions developed in our lab employ protodepalladation as one of the key steps. In this type of reaction, a C–Pd(II) bond is converted into a C–H bond and a free Pd(II) species under the action of a Brønsted acid. To shed light on this interesting and arguably underutilized elementary step, our former postdoc Miriam (now running an independent group at NUI Galway) has penned a Review article, which just appeared online today in Synthesis (click here). Congrats to Miriam on this contribution!
