Compounds with gold-antimony bonds

Their potential activity in homogeneous catalysis
  • Maurice C. Muller
Open Access


A new field of interest in the chemistry of gold has been opened up by the preparation and characterisation of complexes containing gold-to-antimony metal-metal bonds. These exhibit catalytic properties similar to those of the well known platinum-tin complexes, and may also have potential value in the homogeneous hydrogenation of olefins.
