Abstract: The expansion of the concept of N-heterocyclic carbenes as ligands for transition metals to mesoionic ligand systems has led to the discovery of a wide range of non-classical carbene-type ligands. These non-classical carbene-type ligands are characterised by a significantly lower heteroatom stabilisation of the (putative) free carbene, a situation that also affects the ligand donor properties and hence the reactivity of the coordinated metal centre. Based on the unique impact of non-classical carbene-type ligands, a number of attractive transition metal-catalysed processes have been disclosed in recent years, predominantly in the area of cross-coupling reactions, hydrogenations, and olefin metathesis
