This short paper details our experiences with Pd- and Pt-catalyzed cross-coupling and cyclization reactions in investigations covering the years from 1997 until now. Pd-catalysed Suzuki-Miyaura-, Heck- and Sonogashira-type cross coupling reactions in conjunction with other transformations in one pot, especially with the Wittig reaction, are highlighted. This is followed by a description of a combination of Heck- and cyclization reactions. Finally, Pt-catalyzed diene-yne cyclization reactions are discussed.
