Gold, with its special properties as a mild carbophilic π Lewis acid, its ability to insert into C—bonds, and, as discovered recently, its ability to undergo redox transformations, offers the opportunity to apply all this potent proficiency for the construction of compounds in an efficient and economical way. This review critically presents the C—C coupling reactions enabled by gold catalysts to encourage further research activities in this promising area of oxidation/reduction gold catalysts.

Key words: C—C coupling, cross-coupling reactions, gold, homogeneous catalysis
