Cobalt-catalyzed late-stage functionalization of arenes through metal-ligand cooperation

Project description

A more sustainable catalyst for certain demanding late-stage functionalisations

Pincer complexes are well-established catalysts consisting of a metallic centre and a so-called pincer-type ligand. They have significantly advanced the field of organic synthesis thanks to their stability and versatility. Pincer-ligated cobalt complexes are promising alternatives to catalysts using the precious metal iridium, but they have not been able to accomplish more demanding late-stage functionalisations until now. With the support of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the CobaltLSF project is paving the way for the use of cobalt to catalyse one such functionalisation, that of a type of cyclic hydrocarbon (arenes), with the help of a novel pincer ligand.
