Graphical Abstract:


Transition metal catalyzed cross-coupling reactions have always been very important in synthetic organic chemistry due to their versatility in forming all sorts of carbon-carbon and carbon-hetero atom bonds. Incorporation of ultrasound assistance to these protocols resulted in milder reaction conditions, faster reaction rates, etc. This review focuses on the contributions made by ultrasound-assisted protocols towards transition metal catalyzed crosscoupling reactions.

Keywords: Ultrasound, sonochemistry, coupling, palladium, heterogeneous, milder reaction.
