The Smiles rearrangement has undergone a renaissance in recent years providing new avenues for non-canonical arylation techniques in both the radical and polar regimes. This Short Review will discuss recent applications of the reaction (from 2017 onwards), including its relevance to areas such as heterocycle synthesis, functionalisation of alkenes and alkynes as well as glimpses at new directions for the field.
