The ability to tune the reactivity properties of metal complexes through the coordination of appropriate ancillary ligands is a well-established feature of organometallic chemistry that can be exploited in the development of new and synthetically useful catalytic reactivity. Indeed, the remarkable evolution of cross-coupling catalysis over the past twenty years can be attributed largely to advances in ancillary ligand design. During this evolution, adamantyl-containing phosphine ligands have emerged as offering unique and useful properties ranging from ease of handling to novel reactivity.
