Metal-catalyzed coupling reactions are very efficient and reliable methods for the introduction of new carbon-carbon bonds onto molecules attached to a solid support. This review summarizes recent advances in utilizing the three most used methods, the Suzuki reaction, the Heck reaction, and the Stille reaction, in the field of solid phase organic synthesis resulting in small organic molecule libraries.
