Abstract

The reaction of benzenehexathiol, C6(SH)6, with [Au(PPh3)Cl] in the presence of triethylamine gave the hexanuclear gold(I) compound [{CSAu(PPh3)}6] whose structure has been determined; the hexagon of the central benzene carbon atoms is surrounded by a hexagon of sulfur atoms, followed by a hexagon of gold atoms and the wheel-like structure is completed by six peripheral phosphine ligands with interlocked aryl groups.
