Optimising catalyst and reaction conditions in gold catalysis – ligand development

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

This review considers phosphine and N-heterocyclic carbene complexes of gold(I) that are used as (pre)catalysts for a range of reactions in organic synthesis. These are divided according to the structure of the ligand, with the narrative focusing on studies that offer a quantitative comparison between the ligands and readily available or widely used existing systems.
