Tri(1-adamantyl)phosphine (PAd3) possesses unique steric and electronic properties positioning it at the border between tertiary phosphines and N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHC). Novel Au-PAd3 complexes were synthesized from the known [Au(PAd3)Cl]. We have optimised reaction conditions for the synthesis of this useful synthon in order to circumvent the formation of the [Au(PAd3)2]Cl. [Au(PAd3)Cl] was used to access a number of derivatives and some were deployed as catalysts. The hydration of alkynes was targeted to gauge the reactivity of Au-PAd3 complexes and permit comparison with NHC and tertiary phosphine congeners.
