N-heterocyclic carbenes: a new concept in organometallic catalysis.
N-Heterocyclic carbenes have become universal ligands in organometallic and inorganic coordination chemistry. They not only bind to any transition metal, be it in low or high oxidation states, butExpand
Application of palladacycles in Heck type reactions
Abstract In the last 3 years, there have been tremendous developments in palladium catalytic systems for Heck type reactions. One of the successful approaches towards activation of less reactiveExpand
Heterocyclic Carbenes: A High‐Yielding Synthesis of Novel, Functionalized N‐Heterocyclic Carbenes in Liquid Ammonia
To date the only free carbenes of the imidazoline-2-ylidene type to have been described in the literature are those bearing simple hydrocarbon or haloalkyl and -aryl substituents. We report here aExpand
N-Heterocyclic carbenes
Palladium(0) complexes of N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHC) are easily obtained starting from the free carbene and bis(tri-orthotolylphosphine)palladium(0) by ligand exchange. The complexesExpand
