Allylic substitutions catalyzed by miscellaneous metals have recently been uncovered as useful alternatives to the established corresponding transition metal catalyzed transformations. In particular, the interesting regioselectivity course of the allylic substitutions is of synthetic interest. In this chapter, we summarize the most recent findings in the field of group 8-10 metal (Fe, Ru, Co, Rh, Ni, Pt) catalyzed substitutions with a strong emphasis on the substrate range and the regioselectivity.
