Akira Suzuki was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2010 for the development of this cross-coupling reaction. These catalytic transformations are today one of the most powerful synthetic tools used both in Academia and Industry. In the Suzuki reaction, a palladium catalyst is combined with a base to couple an organoboron compound with an organohalide.
