Catalyst-Controlled Site-Selective Bond Activation.


One ultimate goal of synthetic chemistry is to install or manipulate any functional group at any position of a molecule. This Account discusses the potential and possible approaches to use catalysis to enable a reaction to occur at one of many C-H bonds or at one of several nearly identical functional groups.
