Gold-Catalyzed Coupling Reactions
M. N. Hopkinson, V. Gouverneur – 2011
This chapter covers homo- and cross-coupling reactions mediated by gold complexes under homogeneous conditions. In the first two sections, coupling reactions mediated by stoichiometric gold(III) complexes and catalytic cross-coupling reactions involving oxidative addition to gold(I) are presented. This is followed in the subsequent two sections by a discussion of recently developed gold-catalyzed homo- and cross-coupling processes using external oxidants.
