Catalytic oxidative C-H bond functionalization reactions that proceed without requiring stoichiometric amounts of external oxidants or pre-functionalized oxidizing reagents could maximize the atom- and step-economy in chemical syntheses. However, such a transformation remains elusive. Here, we report that a photo-driven catalytic process enables(More)
Decarboxylation process in a series of PdL(2)X(η(2)-OOCAr(R)) complexes 2OS(R) (L = DMSO; X = OOCCF(3)(-); R = H, OMe, NO(2), Me and CN) with substituent R at an ortho, meta or para position were investigated with the aid of density functional theory calculations. Through our study, we found that the OOCCF(3)(-) ligand is not just a spectator ligand but(More)
Silver- and copper-catalyzed decarboxylation reactions of aryl carboxylic acids were investigated with the aid of density functional theory calculations. The reaction mechanism starts with a carboxylate complex of silver or copper. Decarboxylation occurs via ejecting CO(2) from the carboxylate complex followed by protodemetallation with an aryl carboxylic(More)
