Acetic acid as a proton shuttle in gold chemistry

27 julio 2015

A new study gives a vivid example of unusual chemical reactivity found in the reactions with organogold complexes. Using the complex of modern physical methods joined with computational studies, the authors proposed reaction mechanism, where a molecule of acetic acid serves as a proton shuttle, transferring the hydrogen atom between the reaction centers.img src=»» height=»1″ width=»1″ alt=»»/
