Journal Article
Beaumont, S. K., Kyriakou, G., & Lambert, R. M. (2010). Identity of the active site in gold nanoparticle-catalyzed sonogashira coupling of phenylacetylene and iodobenzene. Journal of the American Chemical Society, 132(35), 12246-12248. https://doi.org/10.1021/ja1063179

XPS, TEM, and reaction studies were used to examine the catalytic behavior of gold species deposited on lanthana toward the cross-coupling of phenylacetylene and iodobenzene. Atomically dispersed AuI and AuIII were catalytically inert, whereas metall...

Sonogashira coupling on an extended gold surface in vacuo: Reaction of phenylacetylene with iodobenzene on Au(111). Journal of the American Chemical Society, 132(23), (8081-8086). doi:10.1021/ja1011542. ISSN 0002-7863

Temperature-programmed reaction measurements supported by scanning tunneling microscopy have shown that phenylacetylene and iodobenzene react on smooth Au(111) under vacuum conditions to yield biphenyl and diphenyldiacetylene, the result of homocoupl...
