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.
