Golden (I): A supramolecular ligand–template strategy is applied to gold(I) catalysis. The supramolecular ligands, formed from a phosphoramidite backbone and two templates, display different regioselectivity in the hydroalkoxylation of allenes compared to non-supramolecular analogues. Based on these findings, the catalytic activity of gold(I) complexes could be tunable at a supramolecular level.
