Inside Cover: The Role of Bent Acyclic Allene Gold Complexes in Axis-to-Center Chirality Transfers (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 39/2008)
Activation of allenes towards nucleophilic attack by gold complexes often proceeds with axis-to-center chirality transfer. In their Communication on page 7534 ff., V. Gandon, L. Fensterbank, M. Malacria et al. show that stereochemical information is maintained in not only η2 allene complexes, but also in bent η1 allene complexes.
