Selective C–H activation and functionalization has emerged as an integral strategy for organic synthesis. Chemists have already developed an abundant set of methods, and many researchers are now turning to finding ways of simplifying those strategies. In one of the latest examples, a team led by Kenichiro Itami of Nagoya University and Djamaladdin G. Musaev of Emory University has used a . . .
