NHC complexes

Isolation of N‐Heterocyclic Alkyl Intermediates en Route to Transition Metal N‐Heterocyclic Carbene Complexes: Insight into a C−H Activation Mechanism

Baofei Pan, Sadrach Pierre, Mark W. Bezpalko, J. Wesley Napoline, Bruce M. Foxman, and Christine M. Thomas*

Imidazolium salts bind to Pd(0) and Pt(0) species, followed by hydride migration to metal (induced by heating or halide abstraction), creating an NHC-M complex.
