Transition metal complexes containing unsaturated carbenes have enjoyed a recent surge in research interest. In addition to showing potential as molecular wires and as components of opto-electronic materials, they provide multifaceted reactive sites for organic synthesis. In this Account, we describe results of recent theoretical studies that delineate the… CONTINUE READING
