Golden Carbonyls Proliferate
The number of gold(I) monocarbonyl complexes that chemists have managed to isolate and study has just doubled, thanks to a pair of N-heterocyclic carbene-stabilized compounds created by H. V. Rasika Dias and coworkers at the University of Texas, Arlington. These complexes, described during a Division of Inorganic Chemistry symposium at the American Chemical Society national meeting in Anaheim, are expected to help chemists further investigate reaction intermediates and mechanisms of gold-catalyzed reactions and aid . . .
