A common golden thread: The exact role of dinuclear gold species in catalysis has recently attracted considerable attention. Such well-defined complexes can now be isolated and fully characterized and may assist in elucidating the exact action of gold centers in gold-catalyzed reactions. In view of the latest developments in this area, possibilities now abound in terms of mechanistic exploration and novel catalyst design.
