Abstract

Over the past decades, organic chemists have focussed on developing new approaches to directed C–H functionalisations, where the site selectivity is steered by the presence of a directing group (DG). Nonetheless, in recent years, more and more non-directed strategies are being developed to circumvent the requisite directing group, making C–H functionalisations more generic. This short review focuses on the latest developments in palladium-catalysed non-directed C–H functionalisations of aromatic compounds.
