Trost allylation

What is Trost allylation?

The Trost allylation, also referred to as the Tsuji-Trost reaction, is a chemical process that involves the palladium-catalyzed allylation of nucleophiles. The reaction mechanism may proceed via an SN2 or SN2-like pathway, which is dependent on the specific catalyst used, the nucleophile involved, and the substituents on the substrate.
