Synthesis of a Novel NHC and Analysis of its Selectivity in Ni-Catalyzed Rearrangements of Cyclopropylen-ynes Kelly Wiggins Background on NHCs and Ni-Catalyzed rearrangements carbenes are neutral, divalent carbons (carbon bonded to 2 other molecules with 1 nonbonded pair) NHC n-heterocyclic carbene useful in catalytic rxns involving transition metals bind to trans. metals and stabilize/activate the metal center I t Bu and IPr are commonly used NHCs can fight cancer w/ it give important carbocyclic motifs that are often found in biological systems
