N-Heterocyclic carbenes as supporting ligands in transition metal complexes of N2

Author affiliations

Abstract

Recent developments have substantially expanded the scope of N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs) as ancillary ligands in coordination chemistry and homogeneous catalysis. This review provides a short overview of the emerging field of NHC-supported transition metal complexes of N2 and the possibilities to catalytically activate N2 in these complexes.
