Abstract

Organometallacyclic compounds have been suggested as intermediates in several transition metal mediated oxidation reactions without direct experimental evidence for such species. In this work, we review theoretical studies of the last decade aiming to clarify whether the reactions proceed via formation of organometallacyclic species.
