Decarboxylative addition reactions are well known as an effective approach to C–C bonds formation due to the availability of starting reagents, ease of handling, and low environmental impact. This approach clearly demonstrated its potential for the synthesis of the variety of acyclic and heterocyclic compounds, including optically active ones. The significant amount of articles devoted to this topic published in recent years proves the importance of this approach in modern organic synthesis. In this review, the recent achievements in decarboxylative addition to C=C, C=N, and C=O bonds have been summarized and discussed over the last 6 years.

Keywords: Decarboxylative addition, regio- and stereoselective synthesis, enolization, metalo- and organocatalysis, C-C bond formation, nucleophilic addition.
