Green and sustainable access to chiral and achiral gold-IBiox complexes is reported. The gold complexes were synthesized using a simple, air-tolerant, weak base protocol carried out in a green solvent. Their catalytic activity was examined in the hydroamination of alkynes. The steric protection afforded the gold center by these ligands was quantified using the %Vbur model and compared with the most commonly encountered NHCs.
