Transition metal catalysed direct selanylation of arenes and heteroarenes

Author affiliations

Abstract

Transition metal catalysed C–H functionalization has reached an exciting level of sophistication, and, today, it represents a paradigm shift from the standard logic of synthetic chemistry. The direct conversion of C–H bonds into C–heteroatoms remains, however, a critical challenge. Nowadays, there is a great demand in general synthetic chemistry in, for example, the materials science for the development of straightforward C–Se bond formation, in order to fulfil the practical requirements. In this sense, this review summarizes recent outstanding advances in the C–Se bond formation through transition metal-catalysed direct selanylation, providing new insights into their mechanistic aspects and disclosing effective synthetic routes with high atom economy. In addition, this review intends to show the growing opportunities to construct complex chemical scaffolds containing selenium atoms.
