[ Vol. 6 , Issue. 3 ]


Rajib Sarkar and Chhanda Mukhopadhyay*   Pages 184 - 197 ( 14 )


In the last few decades, considerable research has led to the introduction of selective and efficient green as well as sustainable synthetic methods of functionalization of carbon-hydrogen bonds to form new carbon-carbon and carbon-heteroatom bonds. In this emerging field, significant development has been attained under various environmentally benign conditions including aqueous medium. In this review, we have summarized the current development of C-H functionalization carried out in an aqueous medium and its synthetic applications according to carbon-carbon and carbon-heteroatom bond formations under green conditions.
