This work is foremost a study of various palladium-bearing N-heterocyclic carbenes complexes and their catalytic potential to form C-N bonds. Both alkyl amination and aryl amination are considered. Further elucidation on the mechanism of such catalytic activity is investigated. The viability of alkyl amination using palladium complexes bearing the ligands, ITMe, 1,2,3,4- tetramethylimidazol-2-ylidene, and ICy, 1,3- bis-cyclohexylimidazol-2-ylidene, as catalysts, is investigated.
