Simple and efficient synthesis of [MCI(NHC)] (M = Au, Ag) complexes

Author affiliations

Abstract

A facile and efficient synthetic route leading to catalytically relevant N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) gold complexes is described. The method consists of one pot synthesis starting from readily available imidazolium salts and [AuCl(tht)], in the presence of K2CO3. Using the same protocol NHC silver complexes have been synthesised starting from AgNO3.
