Aurophilic interactions as a subject of current research: an up-date

Author affiliations

Abstract

Recently accumulated experimental evidence for aurophilic interactions in and between molecular gold(I) compounds and the results of pertinent theoretical calculations are reviewed for the period from 2007 to mid-2011. The influence of the intra- and intermolecular bonding contacts between the closed-shell metal centres, Au–Au, on the molecular and crystal structures, and the consequences of these effects for the chemical and physical properties of gold compounds are summarized for the various classes of mono- and polynuclear systems. The literature survey builds on the contents of previous reviews and relates new experimental and theoretical findings to earlier observations (353 references).
