We present an overview of fundamental organometallic transformations in relation to gold chemistry. The focus of this chapter is to provide comprehensive depth of oxidative addition, transmetalation, reductive elimination, β-hydride elimination, and migratory insertion reactions for the benefit of gold catalysis. Recent advances of these reactions enables intelligent catalyst design and pushes the frontier of homogenous gold catalysis.
