The regioselective formation of carbon-carbon or carbon-heteroatom bonds through direct functionalisation has been widely studied in the last decade. Recently, many investigations have been focused on the use of Ru(II) complexes. Herein, the latest advances in Ru(II) catalysis for ortho-functionalisation promoted by a directing group as well as new achievements in meta-functionalisation will be discussed.
