Abstract

original image

Diene to know: The gold(I)-catalyzed hydroamination reaction of dienes is influenced by the interaction mode of the {R3PAu}+ moiety with the diene (see picture). The recent findings of Russell, McGrady, and co-workers are put into a wider perspective, including, which coordination mode is preferred and why, how substituents influence the structure, and what the consequences for catalysis are.
