The heterofunctionalisation of C-H, C=C and C≡C bonds is an important type of transformation that converts readily accessible precursors to valuable intermediates in organic synthesis, particularly when the heteroatom = N or O. The progress in this area of homogeneous catalysis by palladium is described in the current review, covering the period between 2005-early 2010. Asymmetric reactions remain a key challenge in this area, which is highlighted.
