Diamine Ligands in Copper-Catalyzed Reactions
“Diamine Ligands in Copper-Catalyzed Reactions”, Chem. Sci., 2010, 1(1), 13-31.
The utility of copper-mediated cross-coupling reactions has been significantly increased by the development of mild reaction conditions and the ability to employ catalytic amounts of copper. The use of diamine-based ligands has been important in these advances and in this perspective we discuss these systems, including the choice of reaction conditions and applications in the synthesis of pharmaceuticals, natural products and designed materials.
