Anionic Derivatives of Perfluorinated Trimethylgold.


The homoleptic compound [PPh4 ][CF3 AuCF3 ] cleanly undergoes photoinduced oxidative addition of CF3 I to afford the organogold(III) derivative [PPh4 ][(CF3 )3 AuI] in good yield and under mild conditions. This compound provides a convenient entry to the chemistry of the perfluorinated (CF3 )3 Au fragment, the properties of which were analyzed with the aid… (More)
