Ruthenium Oxidase Catalysis for Site-Selective C-H Alkenylations with Ambient O2 as the Sole Oxidant.


Ruthenium(II) oxidase catalysis by direct dioxygen-coupled turnover enabled step-economical oxidative C-H alkenylation reactions at ambient pressure. Versatile ruthenium(II) biscarboxylate catalysts displayed ample substrate scope and proved applicable to weakly coordinating and removable directing groups. The twofold C-H functionalization strategy was… (More)
