Pacman bites selectively! Stable rhodium(III)-N-heterocyclic carbene-hydride complexes (Pacman-like catalysts) are highly active and selective catalysts for H/D exchange at the β position of aromatic α-olefins (see picture). The interplay between bulky N-heterocyclic carbene and quinolinate ligands determines the size of the steric window responsible for this selectivity. © 2011 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
