The reactions of Q[Au(acac)2] (Q = N(PPh3)2 (PPN; a), NPr4 (b); acac = acetylacetonato) with terminal alkynes of the type HC=CC6H4R-4 in a 1:2 molar ratio affords the complexes Q[Au(C=CC6H4R-4)2] (R = NO2 (1), C6H4NO2-4 (2), (E)-CH=CHC6H4NO2-4 (3)). The same alkynes react with [AuCl(CNBut)] in NEt3 to give the complexes [Au(C=CC6H4R-4)(CNBut)] (R = NO2 (4), C6H4NO2-4 (5), (E)-CH=CHC6H4NO2-4 (6)). When NHEt2 is used instead of NEt3, attack of the secondary amine at the isonitrile ligand takes...[Show more]
