Metal carbene complexes have made their way from organometallic curiosities to valuable reagents
and catalysts. They offer novel synthetic opportunities in carbon carbon bond formation based on
either carbene-centered reactions or on metal-templated processes which makes them indispensable
in modern synthetic methodology. The most prominent metal carbenes are now either commercially
available or easy to synthesize and handle by modern laboratory techniques. This volume organized
in eight chapters written by the leading scientists in the field illustrates the theoretical background,
non-classical nucleophilic and cycloaddition patterns, chromium-templated benzannulation and photo-
induced reactions, rhodium-catalyzed carbene transfer as well as the principles and applications of
olefin metathesis which coined the progress in synthetic methodology over the past decade.
Designed for researchers in academia and industry as well as graduate students it presents the state-
of-the-art potential of carbene complexes in modern organic synthesis.
