This thesis describes research aimed at understanding and exploiting metallo-radical reactivity and explores reactions mediated by square planar, low-spin cobalt(II) complexes. A primary goal was to uncover novel reactivity of discrete cobalt(III)-bound carbene radicals generated upon reaction of the cobalt(II) catalysts with carbene precursors. Another important goal was to replace cobalt(II)-porphyrin catalysts with cheaper and easier to prepare metallo-radical analogues. Therefore the catalytic activity of planar, low-spin cobalt(II) complexes based on the dibenzotetraaza[14]annulene (MeTAA) ligand scaffold was investigated. Besides the easier synthetic proce...
