Abstract: Methods are discussed for rapid screening of soluble and polymer-bound homo-geneous catalysts for activity. A polymer-bound phosphine library is synthesized, and a modular tridentate pincer CNC bis-carbene Pd complex is described. The possibility of C-bound His in metalloenzymes is raised.
