Sequential processes using catalytic C-O bond activation
(University of St Andrews, 2018-06-27) - Thesis
This thesis is centred around sequential C-C bond forming processes using oxygenated electrophiles. A major part of this research focuses on the constructive deoxygenation of 2-methoxyphenol (guaiacol), a major breakdown ...
Chiral phanephos derived catalysts and their application in asymmetric catalysis
(University of St Andrews, 2013) - Thesis
The research presented in this thesis is a project funded by the EU-network of the Marie Curie project NANO-HOST in collaboration with partner institutes. The aims of this network are to develop innovative methods for ...
Asymmetric synthesis using branched selective hydroformylation
(University of St Andrews, 2018) - Thesis
New catalysts for branched selective hydroformylation
(University of St Andrews, 2015-08-31) - Thesis
Palladium catalysed asymmetric hydroxy- and alkoxycarbonylation of alkenes
(University of St Andrews, 2015-06-24) - Thesis
Palladium catalysed asymmetric hydroxy- and alkoxycarbonylation reactions of alkenes have the potential to deliver valuable chiral carboxylic acid and ester building blocks from cheap feedstocks: alkenes, carbon monoxide ...
Rh catalysed hydrogenation of enamines : factors affecting the rate and enantioselectivity
(University of St Andrews, 2017) - Thesis
Asymmetric hydroformylation : a powerful tool for the synthesis of pharmaceutical intermediates
(University of St Andrews, 2011-06-22) - Thesis
The hydroformylation of unfunctionalised olefins (such as prop-1-ene and oct-1-ene) is an extremely valuable process and is practised on a massive scale industrially in the synthesis of commodity chemicals. In fact, it ...
Metal organic frameworks as Lewis acid catalysts
(University of St Andrews, 2014-12-01) - Thesis
Lewis acids are widely used in the pharmaceutical industry, generally homogeneously, to perform reactions such as C-C or C=N bond formation and acetalisation. Typically, metal salts such as those of Ti, Fe and especially ...
