Ruthenium-catalyzed direct oxidative alkenylation of arenes through twofold C–H bond functionalization

Author affiliations

Abstract

Significant progress has been accomplished in direct olefinations through twofold C–H bond functionalization of arenes and heteroarenes employing readily accessible, selective and relatively inexpensive ruthenium catalysts. Particularly, ruthenium(II) complexes have allowed challenging direct double C–H/C–H bond alkenylations of arenes with ample scope. These catalysts set the stage for step-economical C–H/C–H bond functionalization with electron-rich as well as electron-deficient arenes and heteroarenes, and, thereby, provide versatile access to diversely decorated styrenes.
