The groups of Seth Marder (at Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta) and Christine Luscombe (at the University of Washington, Seattle), have collaborated to provide an enlightening perspective on how C-H Functionalization can impact the synthesis of conjugated small and macromolecules.

This perspective not only provides an overview of the current status in this challenging field but details the scope, limitations and challenges for materials science in future applications.
