Aurophilic association in endo-dicyclopentadienechlorogold(I)
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2000

The complex between endo-dicyclopentadiene and gold(I) chloride has been prepared by a substitution reaction in dichloromethane, whereby carbon monoxide in dissolved [AuCl(CO)] has been displaced by the endo-dicyclopentadiene ligand. This ligand is eta(2)-bonded to gold(I) via the C=C bond in the norbornene ring. Crystallographic studies show that the [AuCl(C10H12)] moiety undergoes aurophilic association to form a [(AuCl(C10H12))(2)] dimer, in which the Au-Au distance is 3.4282(8) Angstrom.
