Zirconocene-assisted remote cleavage of C–C and C–O bonds: application to acyclic stereodefined metalated hydrocarbons

Author affiliations

Abstract

The molding of molecules through remote functionalisation has increasingly become popular as it provides original and flexible synthetic alternatives to classical retrosynthetic analysis. In this Perspective article, we summarise more than a decade of studies in the specific field of remote activation of inert C–C and C–O bonds using the unique abilities of organozirconocene species mainly from our own research group. By demonstrating that these reactions represent novel and powerful entries towards acyclic stereodefined reactive organometallic species, we aim to show the vast opportunities this concept-driven methodology discovery offers.
