Regiospecific C-C bond formation in electrophilic positions in π-electron deficient heteroarenes results from 1:1-adduct formation with organometallic reagents and dehydrogenation to heteroarenes. Cross-coupling between halogenoheteroarenes and organostannanes using Pd-catalysis introduces carbon substituents in a regio- or chemoselective manner; a Br- or I-substituent is replaced in any position, a Cl-substituent in an electrophilic position. Methods for the stannylation and palladation of pyrimidines are described. These metallopyrimidines are active in cross-couplong reactions. Pd(0,II)-catalysis has been used in the formation of the C-N bond by rearrangements of 2-propenyloxypyrimidines, and π-allylpalladium complexes in the direct N-alkylation. Preparation and reactions of pyrimidinylcerium dichlorides are discussed.
