Electrochemistry of AuII and AuIII pincer complexes: determination of the AuII–AuII bond energy

Author affiliations

Abstract

The bond energy of the unsupported Au–Au bond in the Au(II) dimer [(CNC)Au]2 and the difference between AuIII–OH and AuIII–H bond enthalpies have been determined experimentally by electrochemical methods, with Au–OH and Au–H complexes showing unexpected differences in their reduction pathways, supported by DFT modelling.
