Abstract
The discovery of sustainable and scalable synthetic protocols leading to gold-aryl compounds bearing N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) ligands sparked an investigation of their reactivity and potential utility as organometallic synthons. The use of a mild base and green solvents provide access to these compounds, starting from widely available boronic acids and various [Au(NHC)Cl] complexes, with reactions taking place under air, at room temperature and leading to high yields with unprecedented ease. One compound, (N,N '-bis[2,6-(di-isopropyl)phenyl]imidazol-2-ylidene)(4-methoxyphenyl)gold, ([Au(IPr)(4-MeOC6H4)]), was synthesized on a multigram scale and used to gauge the reactivity of this class of compounds towards C-H/N-H bonds and with various acids, revealing simple pathways to gold-based species that possess attractive properties as materials, reagents and/or catalysts.
