  1. 1. Asymmetric Catalysis Ligand Design and Conformational Studies

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Kemi

    Author : Kristina Hallman; KTH.; [2001]
    Keywords : asymmetric catalysis; chiral ligand; oxazolines; conformational study; allylic substitution; polymer-bound ligands; dendritic ligands; crown ether; oxidations; palladacycle;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the design of ligands for efficientasymmetric catalysis and studies of the conformation of theligands in the catalytically active complexes. All ligandsdeveloped contain chiral oxazoline heterocycles. READ MORE

  2. 2. Novel Pincer Complex-Catalyzed Transformations Including Asymmetric Catalysis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för organisk kemi

    Author : Juhanes Aydin; Stockholms universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; pincer; palladium; catalysis; chiral; asymmetric; palladium IV; allylation; aldol; aminoacid; C-H functionalization; cross-coupling; homoallylic; heck reaction; tridentate ligand; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi; Organic Chemistry; organisk kemi;

    Abstract : This thesis is focused on the development of new pincer complex-catalyzed transformations. Optimization of the catalytic properties (fine-tuning) was directed to increase the catalytic activity as well as the chemo-, stereo- and enantioselectivity of the complexes. READ MORE

  3. 3. Asymmetric catalysis ligand design and microwave acceleration

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Kemi

    Author : Ulf Bremberg; KTH.; [2000]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This thesis deals partly with the design and synthesis ofligands for use in asymmetric catalysis, and partly with theapplication of microwave heating on metal-based asymmetriccatalytic reactions.Enantiomerically pure pyridyl alcohols and bipyridylalcohols were synthesized from the chiral pool for future usein asymmetric catalysis.

  4. 4. Transition Metal Catalysis for Selective Synthesis and Sustainable Chemistry

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : J. Johan Verendel; Uppsala universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Catalysis; Transition metals; Asymmetric catalysis; Hydrogenation; Sustainable chemistry; Chemistry with specialization in Organic Chemistry; Kemi med inriktning mot organisk kemi;

    Abstract : This thesis discusses the preparation and use of transition-metal catalysts for selective organic chemical reactions. Specifically, two different matters have been studied; the asymmetric hydrogenation of carbon-carbon double bonds using N,P-ligated iridium catalysts and the metal-catalyzed transfer of small molecules from biomass to synthetic intermediates.
