Abstract

Oxidative carbonylation reactions have attracted broad interest from both academia and industry in recent years. Enormous efforts have gone into the syntheses of carbonate and urea derivatives through the oxidative carbonylation of alcohols and amines. Very recently, organometallic reagents (R[BOND]M) and hydrocarbons(R[BOND]H) were directly employed as nucleophiles to construct a C[BOND]C bond in oxidative carbonylation reactions. This Minireview summarizes this novel type of oxidative carbonylation reaction.
