The backside-ligand modulation strategy to enhance the substrate binding property of Pd clusters is reported. The benzene or naphthalene binding ability of Pd3 or Pd4 clusters is enhanced significantly by the backside cyclooctatetraene ligand, leading to the formation of the first solution-stable benzene- or naphthalene Pd clusters. The present results imply that the ligand design of the metal clusters, especially for the backside ligand of the metal cluster site, is crucial to acquire a…

Importance of palladium-carbon bond energies in direct arylation of polyfluorinated benzenes.
It is found that the key aspects of the reactions are the lowering of the energy of the CMD step by the ortho fluorine substituents, the regioselective activation of C-H bonds ortho to fluorine which is also determined at the C MD step, and the decoordination of AcOH, which maintains the transition state for reductive elimination at low Gibbs free energy.
