Golden transfer: The versatile gold(I) complex [Au(IPr)(OH)] permits very straightforward access to a series of aryl-, vinyl- and alkylgold silanolates by reaction with the appropriate silane reagent. These silanolate compounds are key intermediates in a fluoride-free process that results in the net transmetalation of organosilanes to gold.
