|Abstract:||The acetonylgold(III) compound [Au(ppy)(CH2COCH3) Cl] (1) (ppy = 2-phenylpyridine) was unexpectedly obtained during the crystallization process of Au(III) lactate complex [Au(ppy) (CH3CHOHCOO-)Cl]. This new structure prompted us to further study the role of Au(III) complexes on the carbon-hydrogen activation of ketones. Complex [Au(ppy)(CH2COCH3) NO3] (2) was synthesized by reacting [Au(ppy)(NO3) 2] with acetone while the ketonyl Au(III) complex [Au(apd) Cl2] (3) (Hapd = 2-acetylpyridine) was obtained through carbon-hydrogen bond activation of the acetyl group. The crystal structures of 1 and 2 have common features: a square-planar Au(III) centre coordinated by one five-membered chelate ring, one acetonyl ligand and one anion (chloride or nitrate). Both structures show that carbon-hydrogen activation of acetone by 2-phenylpyridine-Au(III) complexes leads to the formation of acetonyl-Au(III) complexes. The Au-CH 2 bond lengths (2.067(7) Å, 1 and 2.059(5) Å, 2) are similar to each other but longer than the Au-C (phenyl) bond lengths. The two softest ligands (carbanion) are also cis to each other in the thermodynamically most stable isomer. In complex 3, the σ-bonded acetyl group is confirmed by 13C DEPT NMR spectroscopy. © 2004 Published by Elsevier B.V.|
