Cross-Dehydrogenative-Coupling Reactions with Molecular Oxygen as the Terminal Oxidant

Recent years have witnessed tremendous improvement in the development of efficient approaches for constructing carbon–carbon bonds via oxidative coupling of two different C–H bonds. This chapter focuses on cross-dehydrogenative-coupling (CDC) reactions utilizing oxygen as the terminal oxidant. Because it is more benign, sustainable and atom economic, such strategies constitute important alternatives to traditional cross-coupling methods and offer new opportunities for the design of novel transformations with broad potential applications in chemical synthesis and material science.
