Tandem allylic amination and [2,3]-rearrangement for the synthesis of enantioenriched α-amino acid derivatives (University of St Andrews, 2018-07) - ThesisThis thesis details the development of tandem allylic amination and [2,3]-rearrangement methodologies for the synthesis of enantioenriched α-amino ester derivatives. Chapter 1 aims to introduce [2,3]-sigmatropic ...
Solid-phase synthesis of recyclable phosphorus donor ligands for the development of immobilized transition-metal catalyst libraries (University of St Andrews, 2019-06) - ThesisPhosphorus-based ligands play a key role in a plethora of transition-metal catalyzed transformations. To date, only a few privileged ligand motifs have been developed for high performance application in a wide range of ...
