Abstract:


Organoselenium chemistry has emerged as a distinctive area of research with tremendous utility in the synthesis of biologically and pharmaceutically active molecules. Significant synthetic approaches have been made for the construction of C-Se bonds which find use in other organic transformations. This review focuses on the versatility of transition metal-mediated selenylation reactions, providing insights into various synthetic pathways and mechanistic details. Further, this review aims to offer a broad perspective for designing efficient and novel catalysts to incorporate organoselenium moiety into the inert C-H bonds.

Keywords:
