A review of recently published aspects on ruthenium complexes with nucleophilic N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) ligands is presented here, in continuation of a paper published in the July issue of this Journal, that covered initial work and subsequent main developments in this chemistry. In Part II selected applications of these complexes as pre-catalysts in metathesis reactions are highlighted. Particular attention is paid to metathesis in room temperature ionic liquids as the solvents, asymmetric catalysis, and in situ generated, very active catalytic systems based on NHC-platinum group metals. Most NHC-platinum group metal complexes are useful as highly active and selective pre-catalysts for fundamental chemical transformations.
