English Abstract

¹⁵N NMR studies of the interaction of ¹⁵N cyanide ion with gold(I) thiomalate (autm) and gold(I)thioglucose (Autg) have been carried out at Ph* 7.40. The chemical shifts of the two ¹⁵N containing species Au(C¹⁵N)2- and RS-Au-C¹⁵N⁻ (where RS⁻ = tum- or tg-) were identified. From the broadened ¹⁵N NMR signals, approximate lifetimes of the RS-Au-CN- species were calculated. Captopril (Hcap) with gold(I) forms a 1:1 crystalline complex Au(K)cap. The exchange reactions of thiomalate and cyanide with Au(I)cap have been studied using ¹³C NMR spectroscopy. Au(I)cap forms a very high molecular weight polymer. Thiomalate and CN⁻ both bind to Au(I)cap, however, as expected, CN binds more strongly. Both the cis and trans Au(I)cap isomers were observed upon the addition of ¹³CN⁻ to A(I)cap solution. The ligand scrambling reaction of R₃PAuC ¹⁵N to form (R₃P)₂Au⁺ and Au(C¹⁵N)₂⁻ has been studied for R = Me, Et, i-Pr, and Ph. Two ³¹P NMR resonances were observed for (R₃P)₂Au⁺ species. Howere, for the ¹⁵N NMR, apart from ET₃PAuC¹⁵N(R = Me, Ph).
