    Application of 1,2,3-triazolylidenes as versatile NHC-type ligands: synthesis, properties, and application in catalysis and beyond
    (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2013-02-11) ; ;
    Triazolylidenes have rapidly emerged as a powerful subclass of N-heterocyclic carbene ligands for transition metals. They are readily available through regioselective [2 + 3] cycloaddition of alkynes and azides and subsequent metallation according to procedures established for related carbenes. Due to their mesoionic character, triazolylidenes are stronger donors than Arduengo-type imidazol-2-ylidenes. Spurred by these attractive attributes and despite their only recent emergence, triazolylidenes have shown major implications in catalysis. This feature article summarises the synthetic accessibility of triazolylidene metal complexes and their electronic and structural characteristics, and it compiles their applications, in particular, as catalyst precursors for various bond forming and redox reactions, as well as first approaches into photophysical and biochemical domains.

    Regioselective Electrophilic C-H Bond Activation in Triazolylidene Metal Complexes Containing a N-Bound Phenyl Substituent
    Transmetalation of a 1,4-diphenyl-substituted 1,2,3-triazolylidene silver complex with an electrophilic metal center, e.g., RuII, IrIII, or RhIII, induces spontaneous and chemoselective cyclometalation involving C–H bond activation of the N-bound phenyl group exclusively. Less electrophilic metals such as IrI, RhI, and PtII yield a monodentate triazolylidene complex, while cyclometalation with borderline cases (PdII) or the activation of the C-bound phenyl ring requires acetate as a promoter.
