Abstract

1,3-N,O-Chelating ligands are ubiquitous in nature owing to their occurrence as alpha-chiral amino acids in metalloproteins. These structural units also display diverse coordination modes, which lend themselves to applications in catalysis as well as novel fundamental stoichiometric reactivity, including the activation of inert bonds. This review comments on recent developments in N,O-ligated late transition metal complexes with an emphasis on preparation, characterization, and reactivity.
