Abstract

The activation of chemical bonds to cleavage by mild metal nucleophiles can be achieved by precoordination of a transition metal fragment to a site remote from the bond in question. The following bonds have been activated in this manner by η6-coordination to an internal arene ring: C-C in biphenylene, C-S in benzothiophene and dibenzothiophene, C-Se in benzoselenophene, C-O in benzofuran, and N-H in indole.
