Directed Functionalization of C[BOND]H Bonds: Now also meta Selective

Authors


Abstract

Give a direction: A rationally designed, removable meta-directing group enables the selective, remote functionalization of aromatic substrates (see scheme). The generality of the concept was shown with alkenylation reactions of hydrocinnamic acid derivatives, the selectivities of which were similar to the ones described for benzyl derivatives.
