Cationic gold(III) alkyl complexes: generation, trapping, and insertion of norbornene.


Migratory insertion of alkenes into gold-carbon bonds, a fundamental yet unprecedented organometallic transformation, has been investigated from a discrete (P,C) cyclometalated gold(III) dimethyl complex. Methide abstraction by B(C6F5)3 is shown to generate a highly reactive cationic Au(III) complex that evolves spontaneously by C6F5 transfer from boron. In… (More)
