In this talk, we present a systematic study of potential gravitational wave signatures produced by binary black hole coalescence, resulting in the production of an intermediate-mass black hole (IMBH). The event GW190521 represents the first direct evidence of the existence of IMBHs and suggests that more IMBHs might be detected when more data are collected, especially when more sensitivity is achieved in the low-frequency region, which characterises this type of events. We investigate a few million simulated waveforms corresponding to coalescence events whose remnant mass falls in the range $100
