Abstract
N-Heterocyclic carbenes (NHC) have been developed in the last 20 years as effective alternatives to classical tertiary phosphines in transition metal-catalyzed transformations. The rapid development of this area is a result of synergistic interactions between experimental and computational chemists. Indeed, computer modeling has proven extremely useful in rationalizing large amount of experimental data, and thus has permitted to accelerate the pace at which this chemistry has been developed. In this review, we will discuss catalytic transformations involving NHC-containing gold, platinum, and palladium complexes. Particular attention is drawn to the fundamental insights that computational chemistry provided to rationalize mechanistic aspects of these processes.
