Metal-Catalyzed C-H Functionalization

Call for Papers

The C-H bond is ubiquitous in organic compounds and is generally unreactive. However, over the past decades, transition metal-catalyzed C-H functionalization has become a powerful method to construct carbon-heteroatom and C-C bonds. The development of new methods based on metal-catalyzed C-H functionalization is a highly attractive strategy to achieve green, clean, and efficient transformations, since it provides a shortcut compared with traditional approaches. Thus, the discovery of new transformations based on metal-catalyzed C-H functionalization is of great interest to both academia and industry. This special issue will mainly focus on the latest advances in metal-catalyzed C-H functionalization. The topics to be covered include, but are not limited to:

  • Recent progress on the development of new ligands for metal-catalyzed C-H functionalization reactions
  • Industrial and pharmaceutical applications and achievements in the area of metal-catalyzed C-H functionalization reactions
  • Metal-catalyzed C-H functionalization reactions
  • Metal-catalyzed asymmetric C-H functionalization reactions
  • Metal-catalyzed C-H functionalization reactions in nonconventional media
