Carbodicarbene, Carbogenic Maverick, Not a Moderate!

Carbone is a special class of carbon compound with a structural CL2 that feature a dicoordinated central carbon (0) bearing two lone pairs of electrons flanked by dative ligands (L) units. When L is an NHC or carbene, a particular carbone with a carbon→carbon dative bond is formed. This carbone species is classified as a carbodicarbene (CDC) with a formulation of NHCCNHC. Due to the two lone pairs on the central carbon, carbone or carbodicarbene has a strong σ-donating scaffold. In describe the development of a synthetic protocol for the preparation of carbodicarbenes with unsymmetrical side arms and investigate their late transition metal complexes and intrinsic reactivities. The ligand carbodicarbene is used for possible catalysis application and main group chemistry.
