Alsaeedi, Mona S; Babgi, Bandar A; Hussien, Mostafa A; Abdellattif, Magda H; Humphrey, Mark


3,6-Diethynyl-9,10-diethoxyphenanthrene (4) was synthesized from phenanthrene and employed in the synthesis of the binuclear gold(I) alkynyl complexes (R3P)Au(C≡C-3-[C14H6-9, 10-diethoxy]-6-C≡C)Au(PR3) (R = Ph (5a), Cy (5b)). The diyne 4 and complexes 5a and 5b were characterized by NMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, and elemental analysis. UV-Vis spectroscopy studies of the metal complexes and precursor diyne show strong π → π* transitions in the near UV region that red shift by ca. 50 nm...[Show more]
