The synthesis, spectroscopic characterization and X-ray crystal structure of the title compound, (4-tolyl)3PAu[SC(O-i-Pr)=NC6H4NO2-4] (1) are described. Spectroscopy exhibited the expected features confirming the formation of the compound. The molecular structure of 1 confirms the expected linear P–Au–S coordination geometry defined by thiolate-S and phosphane-P atoms. The nearly 7° deviation from linearity is ascribed to the close approach of the imine-bound phenyl group, indicative of a semi-localized Auπ(arene) interaction. The three-dimensional molecular packing is consolidated by methyl- and tolyl-C–HO(nitro) and tolyl-C–Hπ(tolyl) interactions. View Full-Text
