(Figure Presented) More noble than ever: The first fully inorganic discrete polynuclear gold (III) oxo complex [AuIII4AsV 4O20]8- (see structure; Au yellow, As blue, O red) was prepared by condensation Of[Au(OH)4]- in the presence of AsO3-2 ions under mild reaction conditions. The resulting polyoxoaurate exhibits a tetramerlc structure with square-planar coordinated AuIII ions linked by oxo and arsenate bridging ligands.
