Abstract: The chemistry of heterocyclic carbenes has experienced a rapid development over the last years. In addition to the imidazolin-2-ylidenes, a large number of cyclic diaminocarbenes with different ring sizes have been described. Aside from diaminocarbenes, P-heterocyclic carbenes, and derivatives with only one, or even no heteroatom within the carbene ring are known. New methods for the synthesis of complexes with N-heterocyclic carbene ligands such as the oxidative addition or the metal atom template controlled cyclization of β-functionalized isocyanides have been developed recently. This review summarizes the new developments regarding the synthesis of N-heterocyclic carbenes and their metal complexes. more

Abstract: [Ag(Et2-Bimy)2][AgBr2] (1; Et2-Bimy = diethylbenzimidazol-2-ylidene) was obtained readily from the reaction of [Et2-BimyH]Br with Ag2O. Compound 2, [Ag(Et2-Bimy)2]PF6, was prepared by the reaction of [Et2-Bimy]PF6 with Ag2O under basic phase transfer catalysis conditions. Both compounds 1 and 2 are good carbene transfer agents. Thus, Pd(Et2-Bimy)2Cl2, Au(Et2-Bimy)Br, and [Au(Et2-Bimy)2]PF6 were obtained in high yields using 1 and 2 as carbene sources. The byproduct AgBr or AgCl can be reused to generate 1 under basic phase transfer catalysis conditions. The crystal structure of compound 1 revealed that linear [Ag(Et2-Bimy)2]+ and [AgBr2]- groups were associated through a short AgI−AgI contact (2.956 A). FAB/mass spectrometry and molar conductivity measurements indicate the existence of ligand-unsupported AgI−AgI interactions in the gas phase and acetonitrile solution. 13C NMR studies suggest that the two Bimy ligands in 1 are fluxional in solution. more
