Concept #1: Overview of Cross-Coupling General Reactions

Concept #2: Coupling Agent

Example #1: The Heck reaction is a well-known coupling reaction that involves the combining of a carbon halide with an alkene. Base on the example provided determine a possible coupling product.

Practice: In the Stille reaction, an organostannane compound reacts with a carbon halide in order to form a new carbon-carbon bond. What would be the final product from the following Stille coupling reaction?

Concept #3: Cross-Coupling Reaction Mechanisms

Example #2: Determine the new palladium complex that forms during this oxidative addition step. 

Practice: Determine the new cadmium complex that forms during this oxidative addition step. 

Concept #4: Transmetallation
