Gold Catalysis

Aldrich ChemFiles 2007, 7.5, 10.

Aldrich ChemFiles 2007, 7.5, 10.

Gold catalysis is playing an increasing role in organic synthesis for the facile construction of complex architectures not readily accessed by standard methods. Gold catalysts mediate unique C–C, C–O, and C–N bond-forming processes including enyne rearrangements, isomerizations, and heterocycle formation. Sigma-Aldrich is pleased to offer a portfolio of gold complexes and silver activators to accelerate your research success.
