Abstract

Homogeneous catalytic processes mediated by silver(I) complexes are relatively rare. This work describes the synthesis and characterization of acetonitrile ligated silver salts with three weakly coordinating anions [B(C6F5)4]- [B{C6H 3(CF3)2}4]- and [(C 6F5)3B-C3H4N 2-B(C6F5)3]-. The silver cation is coordinated either by four or by two acetonitrile ligands. All examined Ag(I) complexes show catalytic activity in coupling reactions of terminal alkynes with aldehydes and amines.
