Recent advances in copper-catalyzed dehydrogenative functionalization via a single electron transfer (SET) process

Author affiliations

Abstract

Copper salts have been developed as versatile catalysts for oxidative coupling reactions in organic synthesis. During these processes, Cu-catalysts are often proposed to serve as a one-electron oxidant to promote the single-electron transfer process. Recently, the transition-metal catalyzed direct dehydrogenative transformation has attracted considerable attention. This tutorial review summarizes the recent advances in the copper-catalyzed dehydrogenative functionalization via a single electron transfer (SET) process achieving C–C, C–N, C–O, C–halogen atoms, C–P, and N–N bond formation.
