Synthesis and Structures of Fused N-Heterocylic Carbenes and Their Rhodium Complexes


New procedures for the synthesis of N-heterocyclic carbenes with multiple fused rings have been developed utilizing a key ring-closing metathesis step. Rhodium complexes were obtained via the pentafluorophenyl carbene adducts. Solid-state structural behaviors of the new carbene ligands were analyzed via X-ray crystallography.
