Abstract

Recent computational studies of C-H bond activation at late transition metal systems are discussed and processes where lone pair assistance via heteroatom co-ligands or carboxylates are highlighted as a particularly promising means of cleaving C-H bonds. The term 'ambiphilic metal ligand activation' (AMLA) is introduced to describe such reactions.
