Rhodium catalysts have been shown to be suitable promoters for the activation of carbon–hydrogen(C–H) bonds, which has emerged as a challenging and attractive tool for catalysis. Rhodium catalysis finds increasing interest in the catalytic dehydrogenative cross-coupling, allowing elegant C–C bond construction. Although palladium has been the metal of choice for most examples, Rh catalysts can be suitable promoters for this activation. By using rhodium catalysts, access is gained to important couplings, such as aryl–aryl, aryl–alkene, and alkene–alkene, as viable routes to valuable organic frameworks.
