Abstract

The objective of this review is to survey the current state of the Wacker and related alkene oxidation reactions focusing on the reactions of higher alkenes and emphasizing the mechanistic pictures that have evolved, the current understanding regarding issues of selectivity, recent applications of the chemistry in synthesis, and the use of other transition metal analysis to effect related oxidation reactions.
