Transition-metal-catalyzed additions of C–H bonds to C–X (X = N, O) multiple bonds via C–H bond activation

Author affiliations

Abstract

Chemical transformations via catalytic C–H bond activation have been established as one of the most powerful tools in organic synthetic chemistry. Transition-metal-catalyzed addition reactions of C–H bonds to polar C–X (X = N, O) multiple bonds, such as aldehydes, ketones, imines, isocyanates, nitriles, isocyanides, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide, have undergone a rapid development in recent years. In this review, recent advances in this active area have been highlighted and their mechanisms have been discussed.
