Asymmetric catalytic carbon–carbon coupling reactions via C–H bond activation

Author affiliations

Abstract

Asymmetric catalytic C–C coupling reactions via C–H bond activation are currently among the most attractive and powerful tools in synthetic organic chemistry. In the past few decades, a variety of catalytic asymmetric C–C coupling reactions via C–H bond activation have been reported. Compared with traditional asymmetric C–C bond formation reactions, C–H activation/C–C coupling strategies have more advantages in terms of power and cost-effectiveness. In this review, after a short introduction of C–H activation/C–C coupling reactions, recent studies on C–H activation/C–C coupling reactions are reviewed, with an emphasis on enantioselective cross-dehydrogenative-coupling, C–H activation/olefin coupling reactions, hydroacylation of aldehydes via C–H activation, as well as C–H activation/R–X(M) coupling reactions.
