Iron-promoted C–C bond formation in the total synthesis of natural products and drugs

Author affiliations

Abstract

Covering: up to 2015

Iron salts are inexpensive and almost innocuous; they are thus the promoters of choice, even in stoichiometric amounts, for the formation of carbon–carbon bonds in the backbone of complex molecules. This review encompasses the key role of iron complexes in the total synthesis of some natural products or pharmacologically important compounds.
