Nickel Catalysts/N,N′-Bidentate Directing Groups: An Excellent Partnership in Directed C–H Activation Reactions
This review focuses on chelation-assisted regioselective C–H activation with C–C or/and C–N bond formation using nickel(0) or -(II) as the catalysts, where bidentate directing groups play a key rol...
Catalytic reactions involving the cleavage of carbon-cyano and carbon-carbon triple bonds.
The catalytic reactions that involve the cleavage of C-CN bonds and carbon-carbon triple bonds are described in this tutorial review. Regarding the cleavage of a C-CN bond, the catalytic reaction can
A new ketone synthesis by palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions of esters with organoboron compounds.
TLDR
The palladium-catalyzed coupling reaction of 2-pyridyl esters with organoboron compounds is described and the coordination of the nitrogen atom to Pd is a key step for efficient reaction.
A new ketone synthesis by palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions of esters with organoboron compounds.
TLDR
The palladium-catalyzed coupling reaction of 2-pyridyl esters with organoboron compounds is described and the coordination of the nitrogen atom to Pd is a key step for efficient reaction.
Nickel-catalyzed cross-coupling reaction of alkenyl methyl ethers with aryl boronic esters.
TLDR
The Ni(0)-catalyzed cross-coupling of alkenyl methyl ethers with boronic esters is described, which can be coupled with a wide range of boronal esters to give the stilbene derivatives.
Nickel(II)-catalyzed direct arylation of C-H bonds in aromatic amides containing an 8-aminoquinoline moiety as a directing group.
TLDR
It is found that the cleavage of C-H bonds is reversible on the basis of the deuterium labeling experiments, and the results of mechanistic experiments suggest that a Ni(0)/Ni(II) catalytic cycle is not involved.
Metal-Catalyzed Aromatic C-O Bond Activation/Transformation
Phenol derivatives have attracted significant attention as a renewable aromatic feedstock for the production of organic compounds that are required by society. However, the inertness of a C(aryl)-O
