C–N bond forming cross-coupling reactions: an overview
Nitrogen containing compounds are of great importance because of their interesting and diverse biological activities. The construction of the C–N bond is of significant importance as it opens avenues for the introduction of nitrogen in organic molecules. Despite significant advancements in this field, the construction of the C–N bond is still a major challenge for organic chemists, due to the involvement of harsh reaction conditions or the use of expensive catalysts in many cases. Thus, it is a challenge to develop alternative, milder and cheaper methodologies for the construction of C–N bonds. Herein, we have selected some prime literature reports that may serve this purpose.
