The reaction also involves cleavage of an unactivated C(aryl)[BOND]H bond and nitrile solvent activation. The process is reminiscent of DNA methylation and entails the formation of two new C(sp2)[BOND]C(sp3) bonds within the metal coordination sphere (see scheme).||Funding Details:||European Research Council
