Abstract

In a recent issue of the Journal of the American Chemical Society, Dong and coworkers report that ketones can participate as electrophiles in the Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling reaction under Rh(I) catalysis. They show that activation of C–C bonds of unstrained ketones is a versatile process that can engage in cross-coupling reaction with aryl boronates.
