Abstract

The reaction of the cyclic, 8-membered gold(I) ylide dimer, bis [μ-(dimethylenediphenylphosphoranyl-C,C)]-digold(I), [Au(CH2)2PPh2]2, with two moles of HX (X = Cl, Br) in toluene yields the symmetric cleavage product halo(methylmethylenediphenylphosphoranyl)-gold(I), XAuCH2PPh2- (CH3), as the only isolable gold containing product. Further addition of HX affords a dimethyldiphenylphosphonium dihaloaurate(I) salt.
