This review provides a brief overview of iron-catalyzed C−C bond forming reactions via heteroatom-assisted C−H bond activation, which have been extensively developed in the last decade. Three major types of reactions are discussed, namely, (1) C−H activation/C−C coupling using organometallic reagents under oxidative conditions, (2) C−H activation/C−C coupling using organic electrophiles under redox-neutral conditions, and (3) C−H activation/C−C coupling using unsaturated hydrocarbons under redox-neutral or oxidative conditions.
