Systems in which one catalyst can activate more than one mechanistically distinct step in a reaction process, multifaceted catalysis (MFC), are an increasingly important method in organic synthesis. A MFC approach allows for the conversion of simple starting materials to added-value compounds, whilst potentially limiting the overall costs in terms of time, expense and waste. This review highlights the utility of a MFC approach by focusing on recent gold multifaceted catalysis (gold-MFC) methods for the synthesis of heterocycles.
