Air-Stable Dinuclear Iodine-Bridged Pd(I) Complex - Catalyst, Precursor, or Parasite? The Additive Decides. Systematic Nucleophile-Activity Study and Application as Precatalyst in Cross-Coupling
Dinuclear Pd(I) complexes were recently shown to potentially adopt various possible roles in catalysis, being capable of functioning as catalyst via dinuclear catalysis cycles, precatalyst for Pd(0),Expand

Synthesis of new allyl palladium complexes bearing purine-based NHC ligands with antiproliferative and proapoptotic activities on human ovarian cancer cell lines.
A series of new palladium allyl complexes bearing purine-based carbenes derived from caffeine, theophylline and theobromine have been prepared and characterized by NMR spectroscopy, and elementalExpand

The addition of bromine and iodine to palladacyclopentadienyl complexes bearing bidentate heteroditopic P-N spectator ligands derived from differently substituted quinolinic frames. The unexpected
We have synthesized two palladacyclopentadienyl derivatives bearing bidentate ligands heteroditopic 8-(diphenylphosphino)quinoline or 8-(diphenylphosphino)-2-methylquinoline. We have reacted theExpand

The unexpected case of reactions of halogens and interhalogens with halide substituted Pd(ii) σ-butadienyl complexes.
We have experimentally studied and theoretically interpreted the addition under stoichiometric conditions of halogens or interhalogens to σ-butadienyl palladium complexes bearing the heteroditopicExpand
