Pd(II) caught in the act: The diaryl Pd(II) intermediate of a Pd(II)-catalyzed oxidative biaryl bond formation proceeding via a double C-H bond activation has been isolated and fully characterized, including an X-ray crystal structure analysis. Stabilization due to chelation by adjacent pivaloyloxy and acetyl groups has allowed the isolation of this(More)
The synthesis of diarylpalladium(II) complexes by twofold aryl C-H bond activation was developed. These intermediates of oxidative cyclization reactions are stabilized by chelation with acetyl groups while still maintaining sufficient reactivity to study their reductive elimination. Four distinct triggers were found for the reductive elimination of these(More)
The diverse mechanisms for the reductive elimination of biaryl compounds from diarylpalladium(II) complexes with a tetradentate ligand were investigated through a combined experimental and computational study. At least four distinct chemical triggers with specific regioselectivity exist for this elimination. Heating of the complexes in inert solvents (e.g.,(More)
