Artificial metalloenzymes in catalysis
(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 ...
Solid phase strategies for the preparation of phosphorus ligand libraries
(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 ...
A multi-diverse approach to catalysis : ruthenium, gold and FLP catalysis
(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 ...
Design and synthesis of wide bite angle phosphacyclic ligands
(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 ...
Artificial metalloenzymes : modified proteins as tuneable transition metal catalysts
(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 ...
