An ambiphilic phosphine/H-bond donor ligand and its application to the gold mediated cyclization of propargylamides. Academic Article uri icon


  • We describe the synthesis of an ambiphilic phosphine/H-bond donor ligand featuring a trifluoroacetamide functionality, its coordination to gold(i) chloride, and its application as a self-activating catalyst for the cyclization of propargylamides.
