Abstract

This review describes recent progress made in the rapidly developing field of C[BOND]H bond activation, in particular for syntheses of biaryls. The catalysts presented here provide convenient strategies for the direct arylation of arenes, via single or double C[BOND]H bond activation, leading to inter-, and intramolecular carbon-carbon bond formation. The literature from mid-2009 to December 2013 has been discussed.
