Abstract: Several novel and useful reactions involving transition metal-catalyzed C-H bond activation discovered in our laboratory have been summarized here, which includes olefin arylation, hydroarylation of alkynes, carboxylation of arenes and alkanes, and acetoxylation and aminomethylation of alkanes. Possible mechanisms of these reactions have been suggested.
