Iron Cauldrons and Witches' Brews
This talk will describe the development of new iron-based catalysts for C-C bond-formation that can be used to replace more typical palladium-based catalysts. It will focus on recent advances in the understanding of mechanistic aspects of the catalytic cycles involved, particularly with iron-phosphine-based systems.
