Several efficient catalytic aldehyde olefination reactions reported, since the late 1980s, are described. This paper deals with the results obtained with several metals. The reaction conditions, selectivities and the yields obtained are presented. Furthermore, the mechanisms suggested by the different authors are discussed in some detail.
