Transition-metal-catalyzed C–C bond formation through the fixation of carbon dioxide

Author affiliations

Abstract

Carbon dioxide is an important carbon source in the atmosphere and is “problematic” toward the activities of human beings. Although carbon dioxide is a cheap, abundant and relatively nontoxic C1 source, its chemical transformations have not been widely developed so far and are still far from synthetic applications, especially in the construction of the C–C bond. This critical review summarizes the recent advances on transition-metal-catalyzed C–C bond formation through the fixation of carbon dioxide and their synthetic applications (124 references).
