The quest for selectivity in hydrogen atom transfer reactions

Aliphatic C–H bond functionalization is at the frontline of research because it can provide straightforward access to simplified and cost-effective synthetic procedures. A number of these methodologies are based on hydrogen atom transfer (HAT), which, as a consequence of the inert character of C–H bonds, often represents the most challenging step of the overall process.
