Control of the Regioselectivity in Palladium(0)-Catalyzed Allylic Alkylation
Pp. 81-138 (58)
Stephanie Norsikian and Chih-Wei Chang
Palladium(0)-catalyzed allylation of soft nucleophiles is a powerful synthetic
methodology for the construction of carbon-carbon or carbon-heteroatom bond. The
possibility of controlling the regioselectivity is one of the most interesting aspects of
this chemistry. In this review, the different factors that can affect the regiochemistry of
the nucleophilic attack will be discussed.
