Abstract

Directed activation: Cationic CpCoIII (Cp=1,2,3,4,5-pentamethylcyclopentadienyl) complexes, either well-defined or in situ-generated, promote catalytic functionalization of arene C-H bonds with a variety of electrophilic reaction partners by directed C-H activation. These complexes not only emulate known reaction patterns of CpRhIII analogues, but also exhibit remarkable catalytic activity or unique reactivity. DG=Directing group.
