The C^N^C ligand 2,6-bis(2,3-dialkoxyphenyl)pyridine forms dimercury and orthopalladated complexes, both of which may be transmetallated to gold(iii) complexes; the gold complexes may also be formed directly in a Rh(iii)-catalysed process, hence it is possible to circumvent the use of organomercury intermediates in the synthesis of this important class of compound.
