Organic and inorganic bases have been widely employed in many metal-catalyzed organic reactions to promote the catalytic efficiency and improve the selectivity. In many cases, a certain base only works well for one type of reactions and roles of the base cannot be clearly understood at present. Professor Xi's group at Peking University recently summarized the roles of bases in many catalytic transformations and discussed the possible factors of bases on these transformations. This is the first review article on the systematic analysis of the base effects. This highlight, based on this review and the related references, will briefly discuss base effects on catalytic organic transformations.

Key words: base effects, organic bases, inorganic bases, metal-catalyzed organic reactions
