ng Zhu Matthias Tacke Ten novel N-heterocyclic carbene gold(I) complexes derived from lepidiline A (1,3-dibenzyl-4,5-dimethylimidazolium chloride) are reported here with full characterisation and biological testing. (1,3-Dibenzyl-4,5-diphenylimidazol-2-ylidene)gold(I) chloride (NHC*-AuCl) (1) was modified by substituting the chloride for the following: cyanide (2), dithiocarbamates (3–5), p-mercaptobenzoate derivatives (12–14) and N-acetyl-l-cysteine derivatives (15–17). All complexes were synthesised in good yields of 57–78%. Complexes 2, 12, 13, and 14 were further characteri...
