 Dinger and Henderson proposed [1]: “The average carbon NMR Au-CH chemical shift of 62.1 ppm for aurathietane-3,3-dioxide (6) is significantly higher than that reported for Pt- and Pd- amalogous complexes (2a) and (8),with shifts of 54.6 ppm and 52.5 ppm respectively. This is not unexpected with a more electron-deficient , central metal atom (Zhang electronegativity values for platinum(II) and gold(III) are 1.5 and 1.7) [2].”
