Carbophilic Lewis acids can polarize a coordinated π-bond by a slippage mechanism. A series of stable ylid- or enolate gold complexes of ene-1,1-diamines not only emulate this property, but also reveal the exceptional donor capacity of such electron-rich olefin ligands. Moreover, the first metal complex of a tetraaminoallene is reported, which features a prototype “carbodicarbene” ligand bound to a transition-metal template.
