Abstract:


Most of rhenium complexes are stable with different oxidation states and moisture-, air-tolerant, these remarkable properties result in the diverse applications of them in catalytic organic synthesis as homogeneous catalysts. The purpose of this review is to summarize the recent development of rhenium-catalyzed organic synthesis focusing on the formation of carboncarbon, carbon-heteroatom (C-Si, C-N, C-O, C-S) bonds, functionalization of carbon-hydrogen bond, oxidation and reduction reaction, oxygen and sulfur transfer, photoreduction of carbon dioxide, as well as polymerization, etc.

Keywords:
