Activation of carbon–hydrogen bonds and dihydrogen by 1,2-CH-addition across metal–heteroatom bonds

Author affiliations

Abstract

The controlled conversion of hydrocarbons to functionalized products requires selective C–H bond cleavage. This perspective provides an overview of 1,2-CH-addition of hydrocarbons across d0 transition metal imido complexes and compares and contrasts these to examples of analogous reactions that involve later transition metal amide, hydroxide and alkoxide complexes with d6 and d8 metals.
