Nelson, D. J.Science of Synthesis: N-Heterocyclic Carbenes in Catalytic Organic Synthesis, (20162281.

Gold(I) hydroxide complexes bearing N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) ligands, first disclosed in 2010 by Nolan and co-workers,[‌1‌] can be activated in situ by acid to form cationic gold species without the need for silver salts (Scheme 1).[‌2‌] Alternatively, they have also provided an opportunity for other mechanistic manifolds in gold catalysis, as they can react with suitably acidic C—H bonds to yield new organogold species.
