Synthesis and catalytic activity of gold chiral nitrogen acyclic carbenes and gold hydrogen bonded heterocyclic carbenes in cyclopropanation of vinyl arenes and in intramolecular hydroalkoxylation of allenes.


Mononuclear and dinuclear chiral gold(I) carbene complexes with carbene ligands of the type HBHC (hydrogen bonded heterocyclic carbenes) and NAC (nitrogen acyclic carbenes) have been prepared by reaction of isocyanide gold(I) complexes and chiral amines or diamines. The reaction of [AuCl(CNPy-2)] (1) (Py = pyridyl) with the corresponding chiral primary… (More)
