The organometallic catalyst Pd-PEPPSI was awarded the “2017 EROS Reagent of the Year.” This catalyst was developed by IntelliSyn scientist Dr. Adam M. Sayah during his graduate work under the direction of Prof. Michael. G. Organ at York University. This important catalyst has become widely used for challenging cross-coupling reactions. It has emerged as a leading catalyst for coupling secondary alkyl-Zinc reagents to aryl/heteroaryl halides (Negishi reactions) with excellent regioselectivity. Congratulations to Prof. Organ, Adam, and the Organ research team.

Published review on organometallic catalysis.  The second volume in the prestigious “Science of Synthesis” series has just been published on “N-Heterocyclic Carbenes in Catalytic Organic Synthesis.” In their monograph, IntelliSyn Scientist, Dr. Michael Mulholland and his former research advisor, Prof. Shawn Collins review asymmetric reactions catalyzed by chiral N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) complexes. They summarize the different NHC ligand types that have been developed, including both monodentate/bidentate and C1- and C2-symmetric ligands. In addition, they describe the use of such ligands in a variety of asymmetric transformations and their applications in the construction of complex molecules.
