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. 

Palladium‐Catalyzed Decarboxylative ortho ‐C(sp 2 )−H Aroylation of N ‐Sulfoximine Benzamides at Room Temperature

A palladium-catalyzed method for the decarboxylative ortho C-H acylation of N-sulfoximine benzamides is developed at room temperature. The catalytic method enables easy access to various

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 the

Synthesis, structural characterization‚ and reactivity of a bis(phosphine)(silyl) platinum(II) complex

Treatment of 1,2-C6H4(SiMe2H)(SiH3) (1) with Pt(dcpe)(PEt3)2 (dcpe = Cy2PCH2CH2PCy2) in dry toluene at room temperature in the ratio of 1 : 1 leads to {1,2-C6H4(SiMe2)(SiH2)}PtII(dcpe) (2), which can

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.

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.

Chemical synthesis and application of palladium nanoparticles

In the past, palladium as a member of the platinum group metals was mainly known as an expensive noble metal. Probably, only fast hydrogen absorption into bulk palladium reminded of its unique



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 initial

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.
