Transition-metal-catalyzed coupling reactions play an important role in construct C-C bond. As one of the most abundant metal in the earth's crust, along with its inexpensive price, relatively low toxicity and multiple redox states, Fe is an ideal catalyst for coupling reactions. Recently, green, highly effective and selective reactions have attracted much attention, which accelerated the research of iron catalyzed coupling. Particularly, many new catalyst systems and various reaction types such as iron catalyzed oxidative coupling, reductive coupling and C-H direct functionalization were explored during the past decade. The present review surveys the recent progress in Fe catalyzed C-C coupling concerning their reaction types, including mechanism and application. Furthermore, the prospects of this reaction are also discussed.

Key words: iron catalyzed, C-C coupling reaction, organic synthesis
