Abstract :

The article reports the discovery of well-defined Au(III) complexes which participate in rapid migratory insertion of carbenes derived from silyl- or carbonyl-stabilized diazoalkanes into Au-C bonds at temperatures -40 [degrees]C. Through a combined theoretical and experimental approach, key kinetic, thermodynamic, and structural details of this reaction manifold are elucidated. This study paves the way for homogeneous gold-catalyzed processes incorporating carbene migratory insertion steps.
