    • Artificial metalloenzymes : modified proteins as tuneable transition metal catalysts 

      Deuss, Peter J. (University of St Andrews, 2011-06-22) - Thesis
      This thesis describes the design, synthesis and application of artificial metalloenzymes for transition metal catalysed reactions not performed by natural enzymes. Unique cysteine containing protein templates were covalently ...
    • Artificial metalloenzymes in catalysis 

      Obrecht, Lorenz (University of St Andrews, 2015) - Thesis
      This thesis describes the synthesis, characterisation and application of artificial metalloenzymes as catalysts. The focus was on two mutants of SCP-2L (SCP-2L A100C and SCP-2L V83C) both of which possess a hydrophobic ...
    • Conversion of renewable feedstocks into polymer precursors and pharmaceutical drugs 

      Shi, Yiping (University of St Andrews, 2018-12-06) - Thesis
      Fossils fuels are highly demanded in everyday life domestically or industrially. Fossil fuels are finite resources and they are rapidly depleting, as such alternative renewable feedstocks are sought to replace fossil fuels. ...
    • Design and synthesis of wide bite angle phosphacyclic ligands 

      Gillespie, Jason A. (University of St Andrews, 2012-06) - Thesis
      By examining structure activity relationships for a given catalytic reaction it is possible to discover what ligand features and parameters lead to stable and highly active/selective catalyst systems. With this knowledge ...
    • Development of artificial metalloenzymes via covalent modification of proteins 

      Popa, Gina (University of St Andrews, 2010) - Thesis
      Development of selective artificial metalloenzymes by combining the biological concepts for selective recognition with those of transition metal catalysis has received much attention during the last decade. Targeting ...
    • Modified nucleosides and oligonucleotides as ligands for asymmetric reactions 

      Nuzzolo, Marzia (University of St Andrews, 2010-06-23) - Thesis
      Development of chiral ligands capable of achieving high selectivity for various asymmetric catalytic reactions has been an important aim of both academia and industry. Nature is capable to selectively catalyze chemical ...
    • A multi-diverse approach to catalysis : ruthenium, gold and FLP catalysis 

      Piola, Lorenzo (University of St Andrews, 2018-06-27) - Thesis
      Ruthenium-based homogenous catalysis is a broad and extremely useful branch of transition metal catalysis. Surely, the most famous example is olefin metathesis, for which Yves Chauvin, Robert Grubbs and Richard Schrock ...
    • Novel chiral wide bite angle ligands for asymmetric catalysis 

      Czauderna, Christine F. (University of St Andrews, 2013-03-01) - Thesis
      Achiral wide bite angle ligands have been shown to be highly active and to induce excellent chemo- and regioselectivities in many homogeneously catalyzed reactions. However, only a few examples of chiral wide bite angle ...
    • Solid phase strategies for the preparation of phosphorus ligand libraries 

      Samuels, Michiel C. (University of St Andrews, 2014-06-25) - Thesis
      Catalysis plays a key role in chemical conversions by making them faster and more selective. Despite its widespread use and decades of academic and industrial research, limited catalyst selectivity and stability still call ...
    • Title redacted 

      Forero Cortés, Paola Andrea (University of St Andrews, 2019-11-29) - Thesis

      Heutz, Frank J. L. (University of St Andrews, 2016) - Thesis
    • Title redacted 

      Trose, Michael (University of St Andrews, 2017-12-07) - Thesis
