Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Turn to gold: An effective protocol for base-free Sonogashira coupling reactions using organogold complexes as nucleophilic partners has been developed. The palladium-catalyzed methodology offers a general synthesis of aryl-alkynes under operationally simple conditions in good to excellent yields.
