From olefin metathesis to organoruthenium homogeneous catalysis : synthesis, applications and mechanistic understanding
(University of St Andrews, 2014-12-01) - Thesis,
Olefin metathesis is a valuable synthetic tool, widely used in several fields of science. Due to the importance of this transformation several contributions have been made in this field in order to understand mechanistic ...
New strategies for the rhodium-catalysed aqueous-biphasic hydroformylation of medium chain alkenes
(University of St Andrews, 2009-11-30) - Thesis,
Aqueous-biphasic organometallic catalysis is, as illustrated by the industrial hydroformylation of propene and butene, one of the most promising ways to overcome the intrinsic problem of catalyst separation in organometallic ...
