Development of new transformations catalyzed by gold(I) complexes

Abstract : Gold complexes have emerged in the last few years as excellent catalysts in numerous homogeneous transformations involving the activation of carbon-carbon multiple bonds towards the attack of a large variety of nucleophiles (Chapter 1). Following the discovery by Dr. Fabien L. Gagosz of a new type of air-stable, crystalline and highly reactive cationic gold(I)-catalysts possessing a triflimide counteranion (Chapter 2), our team took a keen interest in the development of new transformations catalyzed by these complexes. This manuscript presents some of the work carried out in this area, which led to the discovery of new methods for the synthesis of various heterocycle and carbocycle derivatives, such as 4-alkylidene-1,3-dioxolan-2-ones (Chapter 3), 4-oxazolin-2-ones (Chapter 4), 2,5-dihydrofurans (Chapter 5), pyrroles and furans (Chapter 6), 1,3-butadien-2-ol esters (Chapter 7), cyclopentenes (Chapter 8) and 1,3-oxazinan-2-ones (Chapter 9).
