Planar tris-N-heterocyclic carbenes

Author affiliations


To further explore the coordination chemistry of poly-carbene complexes, two triphenylene-based planar tridentate N-heterocyclic carbenes and their corresponding tri-gold complexes were synthesized. Molecular structures of the tert-butyl substituted tritopic free carbene and the tri-nuclear gold complex were determined experimentally. A silver-dicarbene organometallic polymer was also prepared with the newly synthesized tris-NHC.
