Fischer-type gold(I) carbene complexes stabilized by aurophilic interactions

Author affiliations

Abstract

The synthesis and structure of rare acyclic alkoxy- and aminocarbene complexes of gold(I) are reported, including a novel ferrocenophane dinuclear biscarbene complex. X-Ray diffraction analyses and DFT calculations reveal that these complexes are stabilized by genuine aurophilic interactions.
