Palladium catalysis induced by visible light is an emerging field of catalysis. In contrast to classical reactions catalyzed by Pd complexes in the ground state, which mostly proceed through two-electron redox processes, the mechanisms of these new methods based on photoexcited Pd complexes usually operate through transfer of a single electron. Such processes lead to putative hybrid Pd/radical species, which exhibit both radical and classical Pd-type reactivity. This Minireview highlights the recent progress in this rapidly growing area.
