    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Gold-catalysed A3-reactions proceed efficiently when conducted in 2,2,2-trifluoroethanol as solvent. The rates of these reactions are accelerated considerably when conducted in a microwave reactor. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
