π-Allyl Complexes

  • Patrick M. Henry
Part of the Catalysis by Metal Complexes book series (CMCO, volume 2)


As mentioned in the Introduction (I.C.1.d.(iii)) π-allyl complexes occur as intermediates in many areas of the catalytic chemistry of palladium. It is the purpose of this chapter to consider some examples of the formation and reaction of π-allylic complexes not discussed in other sections of the book. First, formation and structure will be considered, followed by a discussion of their reactions. A review of π-allyl metal derivatives in organic synthesis is given in [895].
