1. Pd-catalyzed reaction of carbon-carbon (cross-coupling reactions, Heck reaction, carbonylative cross coupling) and carbon-heteroatom (C-S, C-Se, C-P, C-N) bonds formation will be shortly considered from the viewpoint of generality and differences in their mechanisms.


2. The addition of element-element and element-hydrogen bonds to triple bond of alkynes (terminal and internal) will be illustrated by the examples of S-S, Se-Se, P-P and S-H, Se-H, P-H bonds addition and considered from the viewpoints of their mechanism, regio- and stereoselectivity.


The influence of the nature of transition metal (Pd, Pt, Ni) on the product formation, the effect of using heterogeneous viz homogeneous catalysts will be considered from the viewpoints of intermediates formed and the size of nanoparticles involved.

3. Several examples of Pd- and Ni-catalyzed addition reactions of E-H bonds to the double bond of nonactivated alkenes will be also discussed.
