Non-transition metal N-heterocyclic carbene complexes

Since their isolation in 1991,1 N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs) have become ubiquitous in organometallic chemistry. In more recent years investigations into the coordination of NHCs to other elements have expanded, and there are examples of their coordination to elements across the whole periodic table. This report gives an overview of NHC complexes of non-transition metal elements, ranging from the s-block elements, through the p-block and on to the lanthanides.
