In particular, mercaptides of different noble metals (e.g., Pd, Pt, Au, Ag, etc.) were synthesized according to the following general scheme.
Actually, the scheme of this type of reaction is relatively straightforward: brominated or iodinated precursor molecules are deposited onto a metal surface, typically noble metal. Upon adsorption, the weakly bonded halogen substituents are split off with the aid of the catalytic properties of the metal surface, and the subsequently formed dangling bonds are coupled to be C-C bond through the mobility of the alkyl on the surface of metal in mechanism 1 as a direct way of establishing covalent bonds after the dissociation of C-X (halogen atom) bond, and the dangling bonds are used to form organometallic intermediates subsequently ending in C-C coupling by annealing to proper temperature as expressed in mechanism 2.
