Abstract

Selective Au-C bond cleavage and arene-C-H activation in (C^N^C)Au(III) pincer complexes are reversible, leading to a solvent-dependent proton shuttling process. The ether-free cleavage products are non-fluxional and show weak gold(III)-arene interactions commensurate with intermediates postulated previously for CMD-type arene activation.
