  • The synthesis and analysis of lignin-bound Hibbert ketone structures in technical lignins 

    Miles-Barrett, Daniel; Neal, Andrew; Hand, Calum; Montgomery, James; Panovic, Isabella; Ojo, Oluwarotimi Stephen; Lancefield, Christopher Stuart; Cordes, David B.; Slawin, Alexandra M. Z.; Lebl, Tomas; Westwood, Nicholas J. (2016-11-14) - Journal article
    Understanding the structure of technical lignins resulting from acid-catalysed treatment of lignocellulosic biomass is important for their future applications. Here we report an investigation into the fate of lignin under ...
  • Total synthesis of dehaloperophoramidine using a highly diastereoselective Hosomi-Sakurai reaction 

    Wilkie, Ross Philip; Neal, Andrew; Johnston, Craig Andrew; Voûte, Nicholas; Lancefield, Christopher Stuart; Stell, Matthew; Medda, Federico; Makiyi, Edward Frank; Turner, Emma; Ojo, Oluwarotimi Stephen; Slawin, Alexandra Martha Zoya; Lebl, Tomas; Mullen, Peter; Harrison, David James; Ireland, Chris M; Westwood, Nicholas James (2016-09-14) - Journal article
    The synthesis of dehaloperophoramidine, a non-halogenated derivative of the marine natural product perophoramidine, is reported. The key steps included a [3,3]-Claisen rearrangement and an epoxide opening/allylsilylation ...
  • Unravelling the Enigma of ligninOX : can the oxidation of lignin be controlled? 

    Guo, Haiwei; Miles-Barrett, Daniel; Neal, Andrew; Zhang, Tao; Li, Changzhi; Westwood, Nicholas James (2017-11-09) - Journal article
    As societal challenges go, the development of efficient biorefineries as a means of reducing our dependence on petroleum refineries is high on the list. One of the core strengths of the petroleum refinery is its ability ...
