Trinuclear 9-membered rings can be formed by gold(I) ions with exobiden-
tate C,N or N,N monoanionic ligands. They are generally slightly irregular
and puckered unless the metallocycle is imposed by intramolecular crystallo-
graphic symmetry. Gold-gold intramolecular interactions are always present
and the complexes exhibit a roughly D3h symmetry. Crystal structures of
these trinuclear complexes show individual complexes, dimers supramolecu-
lar columnar packing or more complex supramolecular aggregates. Dimers
and supramolecular structures are held together by aurophilic intermolecular
gold-gold interactions. Bulky substituents on the ligands can prevent intermo-
