Homogeneous catalyses promoted by transition metal complexes such as hydrometallation, carbonylation, Wacker oxidation, oxidative coupling reaction are described. Mechanistic aspects of these catalytic reactions are discussed on the basis of the fundamental reaction patterns of organotransiton metal complexes such as ligand dissociation and association, oxidative addition and reductive elimination, insertion and elimination, and reactions of the coordinated substrates.
