New Applications of Organomercury, -Palladium and -Rhodium Compounds in Organic Synthesis

  • Richard C. Larock

Abstract

Organomercurials have a long history dating back over 125 years. Although initial interest in organomercurials was due primarily to their medicinal properties, they soon found widespread use in the Synthesis of other organometallics. This application was relatively short-lived with the development of the more reactive organolithium and Grignard reagents at the turn of the century. Due to their low chemical reactivity towards organic substrates, organomercurials never developed the widespread synthetic utilization that these other organometallics have.
