Novel Ligands for Transition-Metal Catalysis
N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs) are tremendously valuable ligands in homogeneous catalysis. IPr (IPr = 1,3-bis(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)imidazol-2-ylidene) represents the most important NHC. Rutgers scientists have developed novel, sterically bulky, easily accessible NHC ligand IPr# (referred to as “hash” series) that can...
