(University of St Andrews, 2015-06-24) - Thesis
As part of a worldwide effort to develop efficient catalysts for use in organic chemistry and in the synthesis of highly valuable molecules, work performed during the course of my stay in St Andrews has focused on the ...
Transition-metal complexes bearing normal, abnormal and remote carbenes : synthetic access and catalytic applications.
(University of St Andrews, 2015) - Thesis
The study of normal N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs), which probably represent one of the most important families of ligands in organometallic chemistry and homogeneous catalysis, has indubitably led to the usage of other ...
Cu and Pd complexes of N-heterocyclic carbenes : catalytic applications as single and dual systems
(University of St Andrews, 2015-11-18) - Thesis
Nowadays, the requirement to design highly valuable compounds is undoubtedly one of the major challenges in the field of organic and organometallic chemistry. The use of the versatile and efficient N-heterocyclic carbenes ...
