One-electron oxidative dehydrogenative annulation and cyclization reactions
One-electron oxidation (OEO) can deeply change the structure and reactivity of organic molecules. Rings exist ubiquitously in natural products and pharmaceutical molecules. The oxidative dehydrogenative annulation/cyclization reaction has become one of the most straightforward and powerful tools to construct ring-containing molecules. This review focuses on the recent advances in OEO involved oxidative dehydrogenative annulations and cyclizations for the intermolecular and intramolecular construction of valuable ring structures.
