The synthesis, isolation and crystallographic characterization of the first N-heterocyclic carbene adducts of bismuth is reported, by direct reaction of the Dipp2NHC (Dipp = 2,6-diisopropylphenyl) or iPr2(Me2)- NHC with BiCl3. This represents the last non-radioactive element from groups 13–17 for which an NHC– element fragment remained unreported.
