Abstract

The most attractive and fundamental interaction between metal centers and organic molecules that could lead to new functionalization at carbon is direct activation of the C-H bonds of hydrocarbons. In particular, transition metal complexes have been used not only in pioneering studies of the synthesis or detection of complexes resulting from C-H activation, but also in cyclometalation chemistry. In most of the reactions reviewed here intramolecular assistance by a nucleophile plays a major role in the mechanism and/or in the stabilization of products, and thus they are relevant also to the development of a better understanding of cyclometalation reactions. This Account summarizes recent research that implicates the occurrence of electrophilic attack at the metal center in reactions leading to metal-electrophile bonding
