Does Google publish such a list, is there a place I can do a quick reference to search and ensure I dont submit an ad with a trademark inadvertently.

I don't believe google publishes such a list.

Potentially any trademarked term would most likely be registered with Google ( if they advertise), the best thing is to avoid these terms, but in general you will know within 24 hours if you attempt to advertise a term that is trademarked. Google will disprove the ad and state the reason.

@Kiran M;

Any trade-name, registered   with the official  trademark registrant, (in a given country)   is not allowed  to be  shown in the ad-text, in the territory  it is registered in, unless approved by the TM owner.
