Mechanisms of C–H bond activation: rich synergy between computation and experiment

Author affiliations

Abstract

Recent computational studies of C–H bond activation at late transition metal systems are discussed and processes where lone pair assistance via heteroatom co-ligands or carboxylates are highlighted as a particularly promising means of cleaving C–H bonds. The term ‘ambiphilic metal ligand activation’ (AMLA) is introduced to describe such reactions.
