Metal complexes of mesionic/abnormal carbenes and catalysis

Mesoionic carbenes are a new class of carbene ligands that are making their mark as potent ligands in metal catalyzed reactions. In recent years we have shown that metal complexes of such ligands can be used to generate highly potent catalysts for C-C cross-coupling reactions, C-H oxygentation, cycloaddition reactions, transfer hydrogenation reactions, and α-arylation reactions of amides. One line of current interest in this field is the generation of multinuclear metal complexes to test possible catalytic cooperativity in these metal complexes.
