Palladium-catalyzed coupling reactions

Five Slides About

Submitted by Brette Chapin, Harvey Mudd College
This powerpoint presentation was created as part of the requirements for Chemistry 165 "Organometallics" at Harvey Mudd College during the fall semester 2009.  The authors of this presentation are Athena Anderson, Brette Chapin, Michelle Hansen, and Kanny Wan, all HMC students.  The activity consists of three items:  a powerpoint presentation, a script that goes along with the presentation, and a literature review (annotated bibliography) for further reading.  All figures in the powerpoint presentation were created by the authors to prevent copyright violations.
