Dialkylbiphenylphosphane-Au1 complexes exhibit only weak metalarene interactions with the covering arene ring. However, the contacts in isoleptic Ag1 and Cu1 complexes are shorter than the limiting values of 3.03 Å (Ag1) and 2.83 Å (Cu 1). Strong metal-arene interactions were also found in the two Ag1 aquo complexes and in two acetonitrile-Cu1 complexes with dialkylbiphenylphosphane ligands. Arene-Ag1 complexes with these bulky phosphane ligands show the strongest Ag1-arene bonds known. © 2010 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA.
