Addition reactions of E-E and E-H bonds to triple bond of alkynes catalyzed by Pd, Pt, and Ni complexes (E=S, Se)
Abstract: The synthetic application and mechanistic aspects of transition-metal (Ni, Pd, Pt) catalyzed addition of E-E and E-H (E=S, Se) bonds to alkynes were investigated in detail. This study revealed major factors controlling the selectivity of such addition reactions. A new Ni-based catalytic system with a self-organized nanostructured catalyst has been designed to perform chemical transformation in high yield, under mild conditions.
