Protodepalladation is the redox-neutral conversion of a C-Pd(II) bond to a C-H bond promoted by a Brønsted acid. It can be viewed as the microscopic reserves of Pd(II)-mediated C-H cleavage. In the context of catalytic reaction development, protodepalladation offers a means of converting organopalladium(II) intermediates to organic products without a change in oxidation state at the metal center. Hence, when integrated into catalytic cycles, it can be a uniquely enabling elementary step. The goal of this Review is to provide an overview of protodepalladation, including exploration of different reactions types, discussion of literature examples, and analysis of mechanistic features. Our hope is that this review will stimulate other researchers in the field to pursue new applications of this underexploited step in catalysis.
