(ketoesters, amides, esters, lactones, ketones, diketones ... )

Carbonylative suzuki coupling reactions
Catalyst improvements / screening: Catalytic activity (TOF), selectivity and life time (TON).
  Saving synthetic and purification steps

Domino carbonylative reactions: multiple bonds construction under “One pot” conditions.
The construction of elaborated molecules is one step is targeted. Choice of catalysts / reactions conditions and substrates are carefully chosen in order to limit the importance of side reactions or catalyst poisoning.

Example of studied domino reaction:  
   4 new bonds in a “one pot” procedure !
