Recent advances in directed C–H functionalizations using monodentate nitrogen-based directing groups
The use of directing groups has proven to be a successful strategy to enhance reactivity and control selectivity in C–H functionalization reactions. In the past decade, a multitude of new transformations and new directing groups have been explored, and several recent reviews have discussed directing group approaches for C–H functionalization. This review focuses specifically on the use of monodentate nitrogen-based directing groups published during the past two years, with the aim of covering a body of literature that is complementary to existing reviews.
