Isocyanide insertion into Au–H bonds: first gold iminoformyl complexes

Author affiliations

Abstract

Isocyanides insert into gold(III)–hydrogen bonds to give the first examples of gold iminoformyl complexes. The reaction is initiated by catalytic amounts of radicals; DFT calculations indicate that this is an equilibrium reaction driven forward by isocyanide in sufficient excess to trap the Au(II) intermediate.
