Abstract

A palladium complex, trans-Cl(PPh3)2Pd{C a-cyclo-C6H4-o-N(Me)C=CbH}(C a-Cb), that contains a carbene ligand with remote heteroatoms (rNHC) is much more active in certain C-C coupling reactions than comparably simple NHC- and phosphane-containing precatalysts. The rNHC ligand binds strongly by electrostatic as well as orbital interaction to the metal.
