Are There Carbenes in N-Heterocyclic Carbene Organocatalysis?

Abstract

Azolium cations are widely employed in organocatalysis to catalyse highly valuable synthetic processes in the presence of a base. These reactions are called "N-heterocyclic carbene catalysis", based on the assumption that they are initiated by the formation of a free carbene through deprotonation, which can then react with the substrates and thereby affect… (More)
