Intermolecular Olefin Functionalisation Involving Aryl Radicals Generated from Arenediazonium Salts



This minireview is aimed at giving an overview of recent advances in olefin functionalisation reactions involving aryl radicals generated from arenediazonium salts. Based on the well-known Meerwein arylation, in which an aryl and a halogen substituent are coupled to an olefinic substrate, new reaction types have been developed that allow the introduction of a broad spectrum of other atoms and functional groups at the place of the original halogen atom and that are applicable to an extended range of olefinic substrates.
