Abstract: This paper reviews the transition metal complexes such as Ni, Pd, Pt, Rh, Cu-catalyzed activation of hetero-carbon bonds and the related catalytic addition reactions with alkynes. These new addition reactions provide one-step, atom-economic methods for the preparation of the functionalized alkenes, which have R3Si, R3Sn, RS, RSe, Cl and Br groups. The addition reactions proceed with high stereoselectivities and regioselectivities.

Key words: Transition metal complex, Hetero-Carbon bond, Activation, Addition reaction, Selectivity
