Abstract

The reaction of (PPh3)AuCl with the low valent gallium compound Ga(DDP) (DDP = 2-((2,6-diisopropylphenyl)amino-4-((2,6-diisopropylphenyl)imino)- 2-pentene) yields the insertion products [{Ga(DDP)}Au{Ga(DDP)CI}] (1) and [(PPh3)Au{Ga(DDP)CI}] (2), the first examples of molecular compounds with Au-Ga bonds.
