Rationale for the sluggish oxidative addition of aryl halides to Au(i)

Author affiliations

Abstract

The oxidative addition of Csp2–Br or Csp2–I bonds to gold(I) does not take place even under very favorable intramolecular conditions that could form five- or six-membered gold(III) metallacycles. DFT calculations reveal that although this process could be feasible thermodynamically, it is kinetically very sluggish.
