N-Heterocyclic carbene-stabilized nitric oxide radicals were prepared by direct addition of nitric oxide to two NHCs in solution phase. The nitric oxide moiety in the solid compounds obtained can be thermally transferred to another NHC, suggesting potential applications to NO delivery.
Triazenyl Radicals Stabilized by N-Heterocyclic Carbenes
J. Back, J. Park, Y. Kim, H. Kang, Y. Kim, M. J. Park, K. Kim, E. Lee.*
The synthesis and full characterization of the first NHC-stabilized triazenyl radicals were reported. These radicals were obtained by one-electron reduction of the corresponding triazenyl cations with potassium metal.
