Metal catalysis has so far been largely dominated by the use of precious and toxic 5d and 4d transition metals, such as palladium, iridium, and rhodium. In sharp contrast, recent years have witnessed the emergence of increasingly powerful catalysts based on less toxic, earth-abundant base metals. Thus, particularly the use of sustainable 3d transition metals has proven instrumental for the development of versatile tools for molecular organic syntheses, with transformative applications to, inter alia, crop protection, material sciences, medicinal chemistry, and pharmaceutical industries.

This thematic issue covers the entire range of 3d metal catalysis, including strong bond activation, photoredox catalysis, metallaelectrocatalysis, late-stage modification, and material sciences, among others.
