Synthesis and X-ray crystal structure of a cationic gold (I) π-(1,3-diene) complex generated via isomerization of a gold π-allene complex


Journal Article

The cationic gold tetramethylallene complex {[P(t-Bu)2o- biphenyl]Au(η2-Me2CCCMe2)}+ SbF6- (1) underwent formal 1,3-hydrogen migration in CD2Cl2 solution at or below room temperature in the absence of base to form the 1,3-diene complex {[P(t-Bu)2o-biphenyl] Au[η2-H2C(Me) = C(H)-C(H)CMe2]}+ SbF6- (2), which was isolated in 92% yield and analyzed by X-ray crystallography. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.
