Öfele and Wanzlick first pioneered the metalation of imidazol-2-ylidenes, better known as N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs), from imidazolium salts in 1968.1,2 Lappert and co-workers followed this work with the investigation of N-heterocyclic carbene complexes synthesized from electron-rich olefins.3,4 However, it was not until the isolation of the first free carbene by Arduengo, in 1991, that significant interest was given to the area.5 Since then the complexation chemistry of these new ligands… Expand
Group XII Metal–N-Heterocyclic Carbene Complexes: Synthesis, Structural Diversity, Intramolecular Interactions, and Applications
This review covers the different methods for the synthesis of group XII metal–NHC complexes with five- and six-membered NHC systems that have different N-heterocyclic cores: viz., imidazole,Expand
The N-heterocyclic carbene chemistry of transition-metal carbonyl clusters.
This critical review of the reactivity of NHCs (or their precursors) with transition-metal carbonyl clusters and on the transformations underwent by the NHC-containing species initially formed in those reactions, shows that the polynuclear character of these metallic compounds is responsible for reactivity patterns that have no parallel in the N-heterocyclic carbenes chemistry of mononuclear complexes.

Mononuclear Gold(I) bis-N-heterocyclic carbene: Synthesis and photophysical study
Abstract In the current study, 1-butyl-3-propylbenzimidazolium bromide salt (1) was used as a carbene precursor to facilitate the formation of complex [NHC–Ag(I)–NHC]PF6 (2) (NHC = N-heterocyclicExpand
Betaine Adducts of N-Heterocyclic Carbenes : Synthesis, Properties, and Reactivity
N-Heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs) form stable zwitterionicadducts with a range of heteroallenes, ketenes, and allenes. Although the first representatives of this class of inner salts were firstExpand
Fluorinated N-Heterocyclic carbene complexes. Applications in catalysis
Abstract N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHC) are one of the most versatile type of ligands described up to date, this being in part due to the facile modulation of their electronic and steric properties.Expand
Non-innocent behaviour of dithiocarboxylate ligands based on N-heterocyclic carbenes.
The synthesis and characterisation of ruthenium–alkenyl complexes with NHC·CS2 ligands are reported and evidence of a remarkable rearrangement caused by their steric effect is provided. Expand
Synthesis and biological studies of silver N-heterocyclic carbene complexes derived from 4,5-diarylimidazole.
A novel class of silver N-heterocyclic carbene complexes synthesized in high yield by reacting silver(I) oxide with 4,5-diarylimidazolium halides possessed growth inhibitory effects against breast cancer as well as colon carcinoma and antibacterial activity. Expand
Synthesis, X-ray structures, and catalytic applications of palladium(II) complexes bearing N-heterocyclic iminocarbene ligands
Two new Pd(II) N -heterocyclic iminocarbene complexes (C–N)PdCl 2 that contain 5-membered chelate rings have been prepared by carbene transfer from a silver iminocarbene precursor to (COD)PdCl 2 .Expand
Synthesis of N-heterocyclic carbene gold(I) complexes.
N-heterocyclic carbene gold(I) chloride and hydroxide complexes are regularly used as synthons to access various oxygen-, nitrogen- or carbon-bound gold complexes. They are also widely employed asExpand
Silver(I) N-heterocyclic carbene complexes: Synthesis, characterization and antibacterial activity
Abstract Five new silver complexes having bidentate N -heterocyclic carbene ligands were synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, IR, NMR and mass spectroscopic methods. Four of theExpand
