Abstract
The copper(I) and silver(I) complexes of all-Z-tribenzo[12]annulene were sy nthesized and the structures were determined by X-ray analysis. The trigona l olefinic cavity of the [12]annulene incorporates copper and silver cation s to produce stable complexes, whereas the gold(I) complex was unstable, yi elding a cyclization product via isomerization of the Z-double bonds.
