This thesis describes the synthesis of donor-functionalised N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) pre-ligands, the synthesis of group 8 metal complexes bearing donor-functionalised NHC ligands and the application of Ru(II) η6-arene complexes containing donor-functionalised NHC ligands as catalysts for transfer hydrogenation reactions.
