Aurophilic and hydrogen-bonding interactions in [1-(diphenylphosphino)-4-(diphenylphosphinoyl)-butane-kP1]iodogold(I) monohydrate
MetadataShow full item record
In the title compound, [AuI(C28H28OP2)]爲O, the 1-(diphenylphosphino)-4-(diphenylphosphinoyl)butane (dppbO) ligand coordinates through the phosphorus donor to give a linear two-coordinate P-Au-I gold(I) complex. Pairs of [AuI(dppbO)] molecules are linked by symmetric tris-water hydrogen-bond interactions. These dimers associate in zigzag fashion through intermolecular AuAu interactions between mutually perpendicular P-Au-I groups.
