Site-specific Allylic C-H Bond Functionalization with a Copper-Bound N-Centred Radical

A copper-catalyzed site- and enantio-selective allylic C–H cyanation of complex alkenes was developed, where an unprecedented Cu(II)-bound N-centered radical is the key to achieve the precise site-specific HAT. This method is shown to be effective with a diverse collection of alkene-containing molecules, including sterically demanding structures and complex natural products and pharmaceuticals. This result is published in Nature. Congratulations Jiayuan Li. Read More
