Mechanochemical activation can be a useful tool for solvent-free organic and organometallic synthesis. We have shown that this kind of activation is applicable to the preparation of organometallic complexes. This technique in addition to implementing a more sustainable synthetic approach, may also accelerate the reactions and contribute to the facilitated preparation of original molecules. Examples arising from our work in the preparation of N-heterocyclic carbene complexes will be presented.
