Gold(I) complexes of KITPHOS monophosphines: Efficient cycloisomerisation catalysts

Academic Article


  • Gold(I)-triflimide (AuNTf2)complexes of H-KITPHOS and o-MeO-KITPHOS have been prepared and shown to be efficient catalysts for a range of intramolecular cyclisations to afford phenols, acylindenes, alkylidene oxazoles, tetrahydropyrans and lactones, in the majority of cases these catalysts are superior to those previously reported. © 2009 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
