Fischer carbene complexes contain a low-valent transition metal (often group VIB), an organic moiety (e.g., alkenyl, alkynyl, and aryl), several strong electron-withdrawing ligands (e.g., CO) and an electron-donating group (OR or NRR′). These complexes are useful in organic synthesis and several applications of these complexes have been summarized.
- low-valent transition metal;
- ketene synthesis;
- allyl sulfoxide;
