Abstract:
Dinuclear gold complexes have the ability to interact with one or more substrates in a dual-activation mode, leading to different reactivity and selectivity than their mononuclear relatives. In this contribution, this difference was used to control the catalytic properties of a gold-based catalytic system by site-isolation of mononuclear gold complexes by selective encapsulation. The typical dual-activation mode is prohibited by this catalyst encapsulation, leading to typical behavior as a result of mononuclear activation. This strategy can be used as a switch (on/off) for a catalytic reaction and also permits reversible control over the product distribution during the course of a reaction.
