Development and study of ruthenium catalysts for olefin metathesis displaying cis-dichloro configuration with monodentate ligans
(University of St Andrews, 2014-11) - Thesis
New cis-dichloro ruthenium-based pre-catalysts for olefin metathesis reaction were synthesised. This work was inspired by the report of complex cis-Caz-1 in 2010, a 2nd generation-type pre-catalyst displaying latent character ...
Chemical biology studies on 5-nitrofurans and sirtuin inhibitors
(University of St Andrews, 2012-12) - Thesis
Part I: Target identification studies are one of the most difficult but rewarding challenges in chemical biology. Part I of this thesis describes target identification studies for 5-nitrofuran containing hits. The ...
