Treatment of C[B(OMe)2]4 with four equivalents of a (tertphosphine)gold(I) chloride LAuCl with L = P(c-C6H11)3 or (2-MeC6H4)3P in the presence of CsF in hexamethylphosphoric triamide (HMPT) affords the firstcomplexes of the type (LAu)4C. The product is formed together with salts (LAu)5C+BF4- as the by-product for L = tricyclohexylphosphine, from which it can be separated by fractional crystallisation. With Ph(2-MeC6H4)P only the hexacoordinate species (LAu)6C2+2BF4- is obtained, while with Ph(2-MeC6H4)2P a mixture of (LAu)6C2+ and (LAu)5C2+ salts is generated. The title compounds are stable, colourless solids readily identified by standard analytical and spectroscopic techniques, including l3C NMR of l3C-enriched material.
