EnglischIn the recent decades, metal-catalyzed C-H activation greatly expanded the available tools for the sustainable synthesis of bioactive molecules and organic materials. Within this thesis, new synthetic transformations based on C-H activation by earth-abundant and cost-effective cobalt and manganese catalysis were developed. Additionally, new synthetic methods combining metal-catalyzed C-H activation with electrosynthesis were explored, thus greatly increasing the sustainable nature of the oxidative C-H activation approach.
