Abstract

The increase of noble-metal-free catalysis in organic chemistry is a trending topic in constant growth due to the price increase of noble metals and their scarce abundance. As a result, many earth-abundant transition-metal complexes containing nickel, iron, or cobalt have been successfully applied in the homogeneous catalysis of a wide number of cross-coupling reactions, and the use of pincer complexes based on these earth-abundant metals was recently explored, affording interesting results. Thus, this review provides a general overview of earth-abundant 3D pincer complexes and their application during the last decade as catalysts in cross-coupling reactions such as Kumada–Corriu, Suzuki–Miyaura, Sonogashira, C–S cross-coupling, and C–N bond-forming reactions.
