C−H activation reactions with high catalyst turnover numbers are still very rare in the literature and 10 mol % is a common catalyst loading in this field. We offer a representative overview of efficient C−H activation catalysis to highlight this neglected aspect of catalysis development and inspire future effort towards more efficient C−H activation. Examples ranging from palladium catalysis, Cp*Rh III - and Cp*Co III -catalysis, the C−H borylation and silylation to methane C−H activation are presented. In these reactions, up to tens of thousands of catalyst turnovers have been observed.
