  author={Robert H. Crabtree},
  pages={288 - 289}
The discovery of new oxidation states of transition metals is rare. In his Perspective, Crabtree highlights the discovery of such a new state, Pd(VI), by Chen et al. The work may open up new avenues in organometallic chemistry. 
The combined use of cationic palladium(II) with a surfactant for the C–H functionalization of indoles and pyrroles in water
Abstract The utility of electrophilic palladium(II) species was demonstrated for C–H bond functionalization of indoles and pyrroles in water. The system displayed attractive features that areExpand

Halobenzene activation by heterofullerenes: computational investigation of oxidative addition activity
Potential of Pd- and Ni-substituted fullerenes for oxidative addition of halobenzenes was investigated using density functional theory. The metal centers in the catalysts were found to be theExpand
High-Valent Fluorides and Fluoro-Oxidizers
The highest accessible formal oxidation states along the periodic table have been reviewed. The main focus is on fluorides because this ligand allows the facile assignment of the formal oxidationExpand
Synthesis, structural characterization and reactivity towards phenol of a bis(silyl) platinum(II) complex
Abstract The reaction of 1,2-C6H4(SiMe2H)(SiH3) (1) with Pt(dmpe)(PEt3)2 (dmpe = Me2PCH2CH2PMe2) in the ratio of 1:1 yields the complex {1,2-C6H4(SiMe2)(SiH2)}PtII(dmpe) (2), which has uniqueExpand
Reactivity of [1],[1]disilamolybdenocenophane toward zerovalent platinum complexes.
Treatment of the molybdenum compound with 2 equiv of [Pt(PCy(3))(2)] results in a trinuclear cluster, and structural parameters suggest the formulation as the sigma-complex of a Mo-Si bond. Expand
Gold-silane and gold-stannane complexes: saturated molecules as sigma-acceptor ligands.
The straightforward synthesis and complete characterization of three gold complexes supported by diphosphino silane and stannane ligands is reported, providing unambiguous evidence for the existence of complexes of type C, in which a saturated Group 14 element could behave as an end-on, s-acceptor ligand toward a transition metal.

Synthesis, structural characterization and reactivity of a bis(phosphine)(silyl) platinum(II) complex
Abstract Treatment of 1,2-C6H4(SiH3)(SiH3) (1) with Pt(dcpe)(PEt3)2 (dcpe = Cy2PCH2CH2PCy2) in dry toluene at room temperature in the ratio of 1:1 leads to the complexExpand


Development of organopalladium(IV) chemistry: fundamental aspects and systems for studies of mechanism in organometallic chemistry and catalysis
Palladium is one of the most widely studied elements in organometallic chemistry, partly owing to the important role of palladium complexes in organic synthesis and catalysis. Since the initialExpand
Synthesis and Structure of Formally Hexavalent Palladium Complexes
Formally hexavalent palladium complexes have been isolated and structurally characterized for the first time and single-crystal x-ray analysis revealed that each of the central palladium atoms of the complexes is ligated by six silicon atoms and is Hexavalent, whereas the other palladium atom are divalent.
