A variety of new N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) organozinc adducts are synthesized and characterized, among which are the first examples of NHC-stabilized zinc organocations. The NHC–Zn(C6F5)2 adducts and BnOH/Zn(C6F5)2 are effective ring-opening polymerization (ROP) initiators of cyclic esters/carbonates under mild conditions.
