Abstract

This review gave a brief account for the palladium-catalyzed chemoselective Catellani ortho-arylation reactions. Two possible methods were discussed which were usually used to control the chemoselectivities of these ortho-arylation reactions. Additionally, examples of the Catellani reaction in natural product synthesis are also reviewed.
