A Molecular Boroauride: A Donor–Acceptor Complex of Anionic Gold

A Molecular Boroauride: A Donor–Acceptor Complex of Anionic Gold
Marc-Etienne Moret, W. Hill Harman, Alex McSkimming, Jordan W. Taylor
Gold is unusual among the transition metals in that it is stable as an anion (auride). Using a diphosphine ligand derived from diboraanthracene, a donor–acceptor complex of anionic gold, has been isolated. In their Communication (DOI: 10.1002/anie.201703235), W. H. Harman et al. show that the auride complex can be reversibly oxidized by two electrons to a cationic gold complex in which the diboraanthracene unit dissociates, enabling a formal Au(I/−I) redox process.
