    • E.S.R. studies of the decomposition of acylarylnitrosamines 

      Paton, Robert Michael (University of St Andrews, 1969) - Thesis
      The E. S. R. spectra observed during the decomposition of acylarylnitrosamines in four series of solvents have been investigated, and the mechanisms of the reactions discussed in terms of the radicals involved. For aromatic ...
    • N-Nitrosoacylarylamines 

      Thomson, Jemima Birrell (University of St Andrews, 1968) - Thesis
      The decompositions of N-nitrosoacylarylamines in benzene and in carbon tetrachloride have been investigated. The reaction products of N-nitrosobenzanilldes parallel those of N-nitrosoacetanilides, carboxylic acids being ...
    • Nitrene-induced aromatic rearrangements 

      Kulik, Stanley (University of St Andrews, 1970) - Thesis
      It has been shown in this investigation that thermal decomposition of mono-substitutedaryl 2-azidophenyl sulphides and deoxygenation of mono-substitutedaryl 2-nitrophenyl sulphides both proceed via a re-arrangement involving ...
    • The reaction of aromatic nitro-compounds with tervalent phosphorus reagents 

      Todd, Michael James (University of St Andrews, 1967) - Thesis
      As a synthetic procedure, the deoxygenation of aromatic nitro-compounds by tervalent organophosphorus compounds has been extended to include new routes to the anthranil and phenothiazine nuclei. Synthesis of anthranils ...
    • Reactions of acylarylnitrosamines 

      Cook, John (University of St Andrews, 1970) - Thesis
      The decomposition of acylarylnitrosamines in benzene and halogenomethanes has been studied. "Benzyne adducts" are formed in yields up to 82% in the decomposition of N-nitrosoacetanilide in the presence of various ...
    • The reactions of tervalent phosphorus reagents with aromatic nitro-compounds 

      Sears, David John (University of St Andrews, 1968) - Thesis
      The reactions of tervalent phosphorus reagents with a number of aromatic nitro-compounds have been investigated. While it was expected that such reactions would give further examples of the deoxygenation and further reaction ...
    • Reactive intermediates in the chemistry of acetylarylnitrosamines 

      Harger, Martin James Proctor (University of St Andrews, 1968) - Thesis
      The role of aryne intermediates in the reactions of acetylarylnitrosamines in solution has been investigated. Participation by 3-t-butylbenzyne in the decomposition of o-t-butyl-N-nitrosoacetanilide in benzene, leading to ...
    • Reactive intermediates in the reactions of aryl halides with bases 

      Hall, Julia Kathleen Aylmer (University of St Andrews, 1969) - Thesis
      The reaction of a series of 2,6-dimethylaryl halides with strong base has been investigated. Debromination to give polymethylbenzenes has been found to occur in all the systems studied and varying amounts of higher-boiling ...
    • Studies in organophosphorus chemistry 

      Maynard, Judith Ann (University of St Andrews, 1966) - Thesis
      Various methods of alkylation of the >PO₂⁻,>-PS₂⁻ and >POS⁻ ions have been investigated. Ethyl miethylphosphonate reacted with 2-methyloxiran to give ethyl 2-hydroxypropyl methylphosphonate and with p-nitrobenaonitrile ...
