Ferrocenyl Gold Complexes as Efficient Catalysts, Pérez-Sánchez, J. C..; Herrera, R. P.; Gimeno, M. C. Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 2022, 2022(12), e202101067. Hot Topic: Gold

Abstract. More than half a century after the discovery of the ferrocene structure in 1951, it remains as a suitable building block in many research areas, including catalysis with the development of key chiral catalysts. On the other hand, gold-mediated catalysis has been raised in recent years, allowing the creation of a great variety of C−C bonds and C-heteroatom bonds. In this context, this review covers the recent advances made with the combination of these two iconic figures in the organometallic chemistry field, since the first gold catalyzed reaction using a ferrocene ligand reported in 1986. The combination of the excellent properties and versatility of this metallocene, has allowed the obtainment of a plethora of ligands for metal catalysis, although their use joined to gold catalysis is still scarcely explored.
