  • Asymmetric hydroformylation : a powerful tool for the synthesis of pharmaceutical intermediates 

    Noonan, Gary M. (University of St Andrews, 2011-06-22) - Thesis
    The hydroformylation of unfunctionalised olefins (such as prop-1-ene and oct-1-ene) is an extremely valuable process and is practised on a massive scale industrially in the synthesis of commodity chemicals. In fact, it ...
  • Catalytic synthesis of organophosphate plastics additives from white phosphorus 

    Armstrong, Kenneth Mark (University of St Andrews, 2011-11-22) - Thesis
    Triaryl phosphates were synthesized from white phosphorus and phenols in aerobic conditions and in the presence of iron catalysts and iodine. Full conversion to phosphates was achieved without the use of chlorine or ...
  • Ionic Liquid assisted Synthesis of Zeolite-TON 

    Tian, Yuyang; McPherson, Matthew Joseph; Wheatley, Paul Stewart; Morris, Russell Edward (2014-05) - Journal article
    An ionic liquid assisted strategy for the synthesis of zeolitic material is reported. This strategy is a solid state synthetic method and the ionic liquid is employed as structure directing agent. A TON-type zeolite, which ...
  • Polymer precursors from catalytic reactions of natural oils 

    Furst, Marc R. L. (University of St Andrews, 2013-06-26) - Thesis
    The bidentate ligand 1,2-bis(ditertbutylphosphinomethyl)benzene has been shown to be a very efficient catalyst for operating the alkoxycarbonylation of alkenes and unsaturated esters and carboxylic acids giving a very ...
