Gold(ii) in redox-switchable gold(i) catalysis

Author affiliations


Gold(II) species catalyse the cyclisation of N(2-propyn-1-yl)benzamide to 2-phenyl-5-vinylidene-2-oxazoline without halide abstraction while the saturated gold(I) complex is inactive. Redox-switching between gold(II) and gold(I) turns catalytic turnover on and off.
