Abstract: Arylsilanes are efficient reagents for the gold-catalyzed oxyarylation of alkenes (19 examples, up to 85% isolated yield). Using commercially available Ph3PAuCl and readily-prepared, benign arylsilanes, these two- and three-component reactions proceed smoothly in air. The oxidant, Selectfluor®, not only facilitates entry to the Au+1/+3 manifold, but also provides a fluoride anion for silane activation, thereby avoiding the need for addition of stoichiometric base.

1,2-diphosphinobenzene as a synthon for the 1,2,3-triphospha- and 2-arsa-1,3-diphosphaindenyl anions and a stable organo derivative of the P8 unit of Hittorf's phosphorus, C. P. Butts, M. Green, T.

Graphical abstract

Abstract: The electronic structure of the 1,2,3-triphosphaindenyl ligand suggests that it should exhibit enhanced π-acceptor properties when compared to the η5-indenyl system; this insight encouraged us to develop a simple synthetic pathway from 1,2-diphosphinobenzene to the 1,2,3-C6H4P3 and 2-As-1,3-C6H4AsP2 anions, both of which have been structurally characterised by X-ray crystallography; as a bonus from these studies we also obtained the first structurally characterised organo derivative of the P8 unit present in Hittorf’s phosphorus.
