Early Transition and Rare Earth Metal Complexes with N-Heterocyclic Carbenes

This chapter gives an overview of early transition and rare earth metal complexes bearing N-heterocyclic carbene ligands. The most common synthetic routes to mono- and bimetallic complexes and thorough description of the bonding in these compounds is presented. These descriptions provide a strong basis to evaluate the compounds reactivity and catalytic activity.
