Recent development toward more efficient palladium catalyzed amidation reactions has been driven by mechanistic studies and the development of more efficient ancillary phosphine ligands. This review discusses these developments with regard to substrate scope and the nature of the corresponding catalyst systems. Emphasis will be placed on applications of palladium catalyzed amidation reactions and the synthetic utility of these methods.
