  • Acenaphtho[5,6-cd]-1,2-dichalcogenoles and their platinum complexes 

    Diamond, Louise; Knight, Fergus Ross; Cordes, David Bradford; Ward, Andrew Christopher Clifford; Slawin, Alexandra Martha Zoya; Woollins, J Derek (2015-01-08) - Journal article
    A related series of bis(phosphine) platinum complexes 1–5 and 6–8 bearing dichalcogenate acenaphthylene ligands have been synthesised. The chalcogen–chalcogen bonds in the parent acenaphtho[5,6-cd]-1,2-dichalcogenoles ...
  • A planar dianionic ditelluride and a cyclic tritelluride supported by P2N2 rings 

    Nordheider, Andreas; Chivers, Tristram; Thirumoorthi, Ramalingam; Arachchige, Kasun S. Athukorala; Slawin, Alexandra M. Z.; Woollins, J. Derek; Vargas-Baca, Ignacio (2013) - Journal article
    Oxidation of alkali metal derivatives of [Te((BuN)-Bu-t) P(mu-(NBu)-Bu-t)(2)P((NBu)-Bu-t)Te](2-)with I-2 produces the intermediate ditelluride dianion [Te((BuN)-Bu-t)P(mu-(NBu)-Bu-t)(2)P((NBu)-Bu-t)Te](2)(2-) with a planar ...
  • Platinum bis(phosphine) complexes of 1,8-naphthosultam 

    Diamond, Louise M.; Knight, Fergus R.; Randall, Rebecca A. M.; Fuller, Amy L.; Slawin, Alexandra M. Z.; Woollins, J. Derek (2014-11-01) - Journal article
    A series of bis(phosphine) platinum complexes 1-4 and 6-8 that bear the 1,8-naphthosultam ligand (L) have been synthesised. The nitrogen atom in L was deprotonated with sodium tert-butoxide to form the sodium salt. ...
  • Platinum complexes of 5,6-Dihydroacenaphtho[5,6-cd]-1,2-dichalcogenoles 

    Benson, Callum G. M.; Schofield, Catherine M.; Randall, Rebecca A. M.; Wakefield, Lucy; Knight, Fergus R.; Slawin, Alexandra M. Z.; Woollins, J. Derek (2013-01) - Journal article
    Six bis(phosphane) platinum complexes bearing dichalcogen acenaphthene ligands have been prepared by metathesis from cis-[PtCl2(PR3)(2)] (R-3 = Ph-3, Ph2Me, PhMe2) and the dilithium salts of the parent 5,6-dihydroacenaph ...
  • Preparation and compounds of (8-methoxynaphth-1-yl)diphenylphosphine 

    Knight, Fergus R.; Fuller, Amy L.; Slawin, Alexandra M. Z.; Woollins, J. Derek (2010-05-10) - Journal article
    Reaction of 8-methoxy-1-naphthyllithium (2) with one equivalent of chlorodiphenylphosphine gives the novel (8-methoxynaphth-1-yl)diphenylphosphine (3) which was oxidised to the corresponding sulfide (4) and selenide (5) ...
  • Preparation and organometallic complexes of the new unsymmetrical Ligand: Ph2PNHC6H4PPh2 

    Aucott, SM; Slawin, Alexandra Martha Zoya; Woollins, John Derek (1999-06-10) - Journal article
    Deprotonation of (2-diphenylphosphino)benzeneamine with BuLi followed by reaction with ClPPh2 in THF gave Ph2PNHC6H4PPh2 in good yields. The new unsymmetrical ligand has been incorporated into a number of complexes ...
  • Synthesis and structural studies of group 16 peri-substituted naphthalenes and related compounds 

    Knight, Fergus Ross (University of St Andrews, 2010-06-23) - Thesis
    Understanding how atoms interact is a fundamental aspect of chemistry, biology and materials science. There have been great advances in the knowledge of covalent and ionic bonding over the past twenty years but one of the ...
  • Synthesis and structural study of (8-phenylsulfanylnaphth-1-yl)diphenylphosphine metal complexes 

    Knight, Fergus R.; Fuller, Amy L.; Slawin, Alexandra M. Z.; Woollins, J. Derek (2010-05-27) - Journal article
    A series of three platinum(II) halide complexes 2-4 [Pt(X)(2)(Nap(PPh2)(SPh))] (Nap = naphthalene-1,8-diyl: X = Cl, Br, I) and a ruthenium(II) p-cymene complex 5 [Ru(eta(6)-(MeC6H4Pr)-Pr-i)(Cl){Nap(PPh2)(SPh)}]Cl-+(-) of ...
