Several new methods for introducing heteroatoms into hydrocarbon frameworks
using transition metal catalysis will be discussed. This will include efforts towards
developing palladium-catalyzed silyl-Heck reactions for preparing unsaturated
organosilanes from simple alkenes. In addition, new alkylation strategies for
nitroalkanes and primary amides using copper catalysis will be described.
