Metal-catalysed cleavage of carbon–carbon bonds

Author affiliations


Reactions cleaving carbon–carbon bonds with the assistance of transition metals as the catalyst have provided various molecular transformations that are otherwise difficult to execute, opening a scenic avenue along organic synthesis. Construction of structural motifs like medium-sized carbocycles and chiral quaternary carbon centres have been set within an access of such paradoxical approaches in the past decade.
