Mechanism of Rhodium-Catalyzed C–H Functionalization: Advances in Theoretical Investigation
Ruopeng Bai, Xiaotian Qi, Yu Lan, Yingzi Li
Transition-metal-catalyzed cross-coupling has emerged as an effective strategy for chemical synthesis. Within this area, direct C–H bond transformation is one of the most efficient and environmentally friendly processes for the construction of new C–C or C–heteroatom bonds. Over the past decades, rhodium-catalyzed C–H functionalization has attracted considerable attention because of the versatility and wide use of rhodium catalysts in chemistry. A series of C–X (X = C, N, or O) bond formation reactions could be realized from corresponding C–H bonds using rhodium catalysts. Various experimental studies on rhodium-catalyzed C–H functionalization reactions have been reported, and in tandem, mechanistic and computational studies have also progressed significantly.
