Cofactor-mimetic aerobic oxidation has conceptually merged with catalysis of syngas reactions to form a wide range of Markovnikov-selective olefin radical hydrofunctionalizations. We cover the development of the field and review contributions to reaction invention, mechanism, and application to complex molecule synthesis. We also provide a mechanistic framework for understanding this compendium of radical reactions.

Fe-catalyzed Fukuyama-type indole synthesis triggered by hydrogen atom transfer
An efficient Fe-catalyzed intramolecular isonitrile–olefin coupling reaction delivering 3-substituted indoles, in which is onitrile was firstly applied as the hydrogen atom acceptor in the radical generation step by MHAT.
Iron-Catalyzed Radical Intermolecular Addition of Unbiased Alkenes to Aldehydes.
The insights gained in this study led to the reexamination of the previously reported intramolecular version of the reaction, and the addition of FeII salts allowed the development of a more efficient second-generation approach.
Cobalt(III)-Catalyzed Intermolecular Carboamination of Propiolates and Bicyclic Alkenes via Non-Annulative Redox-Neutral Coupling.
A cobalt(III)-catalyzed, redox-neutral, intermolecular carboamination of propiolates and bicyclic alkenes was developed, which features atom economy, high regioselectivity, good yields, and functional groups tolerance.

Iron-catalyzed redox radical cyclizations of 1,6-dienes and enynes.
Treatment of 1,6-dienes and enynes with FeCl(3) or Fe(Pc) in the presence of NaBH(4) and air or O(2) causes radical cyclization to give five-membered carbo or heterocyclic compounds, into which a
Catalytic hydrohydrazination of a wide range of alkenes with a simple mn complex.
Enhanced activity, lower catalyst loading, shorter reaction time, and expanded substrate scope are the advantages of [Mn(dpm)3] over Co catalysts in the hydrohydrazination reaction of alkenes, including tetrasubstitutedAlkenes can now also readily undergo this reaction.
Manganese porphyrin-catalysed oxidation of olefins to ketones by molecular oxygen
Manganese(III) tetraphenylporphin MnIII(tpp)Cl catalyses the specific oxidation of olefins to ketones by O2 in the presence of [NBu4][BH4]; the latter reagent further reduces the ketones to the
