Carbene, persistent carbene and NHC[edit]

I started a discussion on the talk-page of Carbene about what info should end up where regarding carbenes. Could interested people please join there? Dirk Beetstra 21:39, 11 May 2006 (UTC)

The term carbene ligand is a formalism since many are not derived from carbenes and almost none exhibit the reactivity characteristic of carbenes. if this is true, please attach a reference, or explain with examples later in the text. cause it's confusing. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 20:49, 30 July 2010

Can the author comment on "All transition metals form such complexes." Both the "Persistent Carbenes" page, and my TA in a synthesis lab indicate that there are several transition metals for which no persistent carbene complex has yet been formed. Thanks for any information on the validity of this statement.— Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 19:40, 1 November 2010

There's no one author, there are many. I've replaced it with "many" on the off-chance that one has not been synthesized, but they probably will all be eventually. Polly Arnold published a review on the Lanthanides and Actinides, perhaps interesting reading: doi:10.1021/cr8005203. --Rifleman 82 (talk) 00:50, 2 November 2010 (UTC)
