The palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling reaction of organogold(I) reagents (alkyl, alkenyl, aryl, and alkynyl) with organic electrophiles, such as aryl and alkenyl halides, aryl triflates, benzyl bromide, and benzoyl chloride is reported. The reaction takes place, under palladium catalysis, at room temperature with short reaction times to give the corresponding cross-coupling products in high yields.
