Abstract :

N-Heterocyclic carbene (NHC) complexes with silver were investigated as sources of unsaturated NHC carbene catalysts via thermal decomposition. A study was conducted to demonstrate that silver carbene complexes are competent catalysts for the ring-opening polymerization of lactide, as well as the transesterification of methyl benzoates.
