N-heterocyclic carbenes now hold a preferred ligand status in organic and organometallic chemistry. Their role in catalysis continues to grow. The use of these ligands now extends to numerous fields spanning from fine chemicals to polymer synthesis. Main group chemistry has also benefited from these ligands as stabilizing entities. The action of state-of-the-art catalysts are nowadays better understood through detailed mechanistic work, which permits the design of ever-better performing catalytic systems. This Thematic Series highlights the diversity of fields that are affected and enhanced by N-heterocyclic carbenes.
