    • An efficient, scalable synthesis of ferrocenylphosphine and dichloroferrocenylphosphine 

      Surgenor, Brian Andrew; Taylor, Laurence John; Nordheider, Andreas; Slawin, Alexandra Martha Zoya; Athukorala Arachchige, Kasun Sankalpa; Woollins, John Derek; Kilian, Petr (2016) - Journal article
      A new synthetic route to FcPH2 and FcPCl2 (Fc = Ferrocenyl) is presented. This method avoids the challenging monolithiation of ferrocene, as well as any tedious purification steps. All reactions are high yielding and easily ...
    • Eliminations across the peri-gap : peri-substitution as a means to promote kinetically disfavoured reactivity 

      Taylor, Laurence John (University of St Andrews, 2017-12-07) - Thesis
      While the ability of peri-substitution to stabilise species that are typically short-lived is well documented, its capacity to promote kinetically disfavoured reactivity is less well known. In this work, we examine the ...
    • Hydride abstraction and deprotonation – an efficient route to low co-ordinate phosphorus and arsenic species 

      Taylor, Laurence John; Buehl, Michael; Wawrzyniak, Piotr; Chalmers, Brian Alexander; Woollins, J Derek; Slawin, Alexandra Martha Zoya; Fuller, Amy; Kilian, Petr (2015) - Journal article
      Treatment of Acenap(PiPr2)(EH2) (Acenap = acenaphthene-5,6-diyl; 1a, E = As; 1b, E = P) with Ph3C·BF4 resulted in hydride abstraction to give [Acenap(PiPr2)(EH)][BF4] (2a, E = As; 2b, E = P). These represent the first ...
    • Spontaneous dehydrocoupling in peri-substituted phosphine-borane adducts 

      Taylor, Laurence John; Surgenor, Brian Andrew; Wawrzyniak, Piotr; Ray, Matthew James; Cordes, David Bradford; Slawin, Alexandra Martha Zoya; Kilian, Petr (2016-02-07) - Journal article
      Bis(borane) adducts Acenap(PiPr2·BH3)(PRH·BH3) (Acenap = acenaphthene-5,6-diyl; 4a, R = Ph; 4b, R = ferrocenyl, Fc; 4c, R = H) were synthesised by the reaction of excess H3B·SMe2 with either phosphino-phosphonium salts ...
