What is it about?
NHCs are useful ligands for metal complexes - when they are attached to metal atoms they modify their properties, allowing them to act as catalysts for chemical reactions. In this manuscript, we prepare and characterise a new NHC ligand with a very defined shape.
Why is it important?
This ligand has a novel shape, so may allow for new or improved reactivity when co-ordinated to metal atoms.
