      Abstract:

      The title compd., [Au(C7H7S)(C18H15P)], is conformationally   chiral and crystallizes from benzene-hexane as individually   enantiopure crystals.  This mononuclear compd. has the AuI   atom linearly bound to a PPh3 P atom and to a Ph C atom of a   2-(methylsulfanyl)phenyl group.  The angle at the AuI atom   is 175.9(2).  The linear ligand coordination about the AuI   atom has geometric parameters inside the remarkably narrow range   found for Au complexes bound by a phosphine ligand and by the   ortho-C atom of a substituted Ph group.  This is the 1st   example of Au(I) attached to a methylsulfanyl arom.   carbanion.  Crystallog. data are given.
