Homogeneous Oxidation of Alkanes by Electrophilic Late Transition Metals


The selective oxidation of alkanes is a topic of considerable interest to both industrial and academic chemists. While the initial discovery occurred more than 25 years ago, new developments in alkane oxidation catalyzed by electrophilic late transition metals have provided important mechanistic insights as well as potentially practical methods for alkane transformations.
