Selective Aliphatic Carbon–Carbon Bond Activation by Rhodium Porphyrin Complexes

Selective Aliphatic Carbon–Carbon Bond Activation by Rhodium Porphyrin Complexes
Ching Tat To, Kin Shing Chan
The carbon–carbon bond activation of organic molecules with transition metal complexes is an attractive transformation. These reactions form transition metal–carbon bonded intermediates, which contribute to fundamental understanding in organometallic chemistry. Alternatively, the metal–carbon bond in these intermediates can be further functionalized to construct new carbon–(hetero)atom bonds. This methodology promotes the concept that the carbon–carbon bond acts as a functional group, although carbon–carbon bonds are kinetically inert. In the past few decades, numerous efforts have been made to overcome the chemo-, regio- and, more recently, stereoselectivity obstacles. The synthetic usefulness of the selective carbon–carbon bond activation has been significantly expanded and is becoming increasingly practical: this technique covers a wide range of substrate scopes and transition metals.
