Filling a gap in the literature, this book comprehensively reviews catalytic C-H addition reactions of (hetero)aromatic hydrocarbons across carbon-carbon multiple bonds. In so doing, it summarizes both the scope as well as the limitations of different catalyst systems and building blocks, while highlighting their application to the synthesis of pharmaceuticals as well as commodity chemicals. Focusing on the latest developments, the team of authors comprising leaders in the field covers such topics as the hydroarylation of olefins, alkyne hydroarylation in the presence of transition metal catalysts, reaction of alkynes with arylboronic acids, and allene hydroarylation, as well as the synthesis of functionalized arenes and heteroaromatics. A must-have for synthetic chemists in academia and industry dealing with catalysis, organometallic chemistry, the synthesis of natural products, fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals, products of the chemical industry and organic materials.
