Atropisomeric [(diphosphine)Au2 Cl2 ] complexes and their catalytic activity towards asymmetric cycloisomerisation of 1,6-enynes.

Barreiro EM, Boltukhina EV, White AJ, Hii KK - Chemistry (2014)

Bottom Line: Conversely, the same effect was not observed for ligands based on the binaphthyl (BINAP) series.The catalytic activity of these complexes was subsequently assessed in the enantioselective cycloisomerisation of 1,6-enynes and revealed an over-riding electronic effect: more-electron-rich phosphines promote greater enantioselectivity.The possibility of silver acting as a (co-)catalyst was ruled out in these reactions.
