This review with 800 references illustrates applications of Suzuki-Miyaura (S.-M.)
reactions in the total syntheses of 147 natural products that were made in the period 2010–2013.
The review has been organized on the basis of the seven classes of phosphane-based Pd catalysts
that have been used in the reported total syntheses. Emphasis has been given to describe and
discuss the experimental conditions of the Pd-catalyzed (S.-M.) cross-coupling reactions also
outlining the methods used to prepare the reactants. A focus has also been set on the biological
and pharmacological properties of the reported natural products as well as on the most significant
steps of the reported total syntheses.
Keywords: Carbon–carbon bond forming reactions, chemoselectivity, siteselectivity, stereoselectivity, transition metal catalyst.
