Abstract (300 words maximum)

The chemistry of N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs) has witnessed tremendous development in the past two decades. NHCs have not only become some of the most versatile ligands for transition metals, but they also have emerged as powerful organic catalysts in molecular chemistry. This project will describe our efforts towards the synthesis and characterization of a new rigid multitopic NHC featuring geometrically isolated carbene moieties for incorporation in multimetallic complexes. The role of these complexes in catalysis will be discussed.
