Carbon monoxide is an important one-carbon source and can be incorporated in complex molecules via various transition-metal-catalyzed carbonylation reactions. In particular, palladium-catalyzed carbonylation reactions have found broad application in total synthesis of natural products. Examples are presented in this Synopsis to highlight recent progress in this area, including our own work in macrolide and spirocyclic molecule synthesis. In these selected cases, carbon monoxide functions as a one-carbon linchpin to facilitate building structural complexity and improving synthetic efficiency.

Palladium Bohr ModelSee more Palladium products. Palladium (atomic symbol: Pd, atomic number: 46) is a Block D, Group 10, Period 5 element with an atomic weight of 106.42. The number of electrons in each of palladium's shells is 2, 8, 18, 18 and its electron configuration is [Kr] 4d10. The palladium atom has a radius of 137 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 202 pm. In its elemental form, palladium has a silvery white appearance. Palladium is a member of the platinum group of metals (along with platinum, rhodium, ruthenium, iridium and osmium). Elemental PalladiumPalladium has the lowest melting point and is the least dense of the group. Palladium can be found as a free metal and alloyed with other platinum-group metals. Nickel-copper deposits are the main commercial source of palladium. Palladium was discovered and first isolated by William Hyde Wollaston in 1803. Its name is derived from the asteroid Pallas.
