Mechanistic insights into enzymatic and homogeneous transition metal catalysis from quantum-chemical calculations
(University of St Andrews, 2015-11-30) - Thesis,
Catalysis is a key area of chemistry. Through catalysis it is possible to achieve better synthetic routes, exploit molecules normally considered to be inactive and also attain novel chemical transformations. The development ...
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 ...
