Alkane C–H activation and functionalization with homogeneous transition metal catalysts: a century of progress—a new millennium in prospect

Author affiliations

Abstract

The main advances in the title area are reviewed with emphasis on catalytic alkane functionalization, both organometallic and bioinorganic. Current challenges are discussed. A tunable, selective hydrocarbon functionalization is still out of reach and resolving mechanistic problems has proved particularly challenging.
