Title

Using Bimetallic complexes to promote coordination and site selectivity in Transition Metal Catalyzed CH and CC activation Reactions

Abstract

Selective CH activation has been achieved in the past by employing bulky directing groups on the substrate. Our research focuses on achieving that selectivity through the coordination promo toted by a bimetallic complex.
