Transition-Metal-Catalyzed C–H Bond Addition to Carbonyls, Imines, and Related Polarized π Bonds

Transition-Metal-Catalyzed C–H Bond Addition to Carbonyls, Imines, and Related Polarized π Bonds
Joshua R. Hummel, Jonathan A. Ellman, Jeffrey A. Boerth
The transition-metal-catalyzed addition of C–H bonds to carbonyls, imines, and related polarized π bonds has emerged as a particularly efficient and powerful approach for the construction of an incredibly diverse array of heteroatom-substituted products. Readily available and stable inputs are typically employed, and reactions often proceed with very high functional group compatibility and without the production of waste byproducts. Additionally, many transition-metal-catalyzed C–H bond additions to polarized π bonds occur within cascade reaction sequences to provide rapid access to a diverse array of different heterocyclic as well as carbocyclic products. This review highlights the diversity of transformations that have been achieved, catalysts that have been used, and types of products that have been prepared through the transition-metal-catalyzed addition of C–H bonds to carbonyls, imines, and related polarized π bonds.
