Advances in C-H Activation Chemistry
Posted September 15, 2020
Over the past 15 years, Carbon-Hydrogen (C-H) bond activation and subsequent functionalization has revolutionized the way organic chemists approach target-oriented synthesis. The ability to target and manipulate specific C-H bonds in molecules allows chemists to efficiently functionalize, and in some cases, repurpose existing drugs.
In this eBriefing, You’ll Learn:
- Why C-H activation is such an effective tool for synthetic organic chemists.
- New strategies for C-H activation and the formation of new bonds to carbon and nitrogen.
- The limitations of C-H activation and why certain C-H bonds are more/less reactive than others.
- Future directions for C-H activation chemistry.
