Abstract

Raman and i.r. spectra of complexes of gold(III) with chloride and bipyridyl or 1,10-phenanthroline ligands are reported. The spectra in both the aromatic-ring stretching region and the metal-halide stretching region are assigned. The compounds are four-coordinate. It is concluded that the nitrogen ligands bridge two AuCl3 moieties in (L2)Au2Cl6 compounds and that bipyridyl AuCl3 is a polymer containing planar bipyridyl AuCl2 units bridged by chloride ions.
