  1. 1. Organocatalytic Transformations with N-Heterocyclic Carbenes - An Investigation of Ionic Liquids as NHC Precatalysts and Aerobic Oxidative Esterifications

    Author : Linda Ta; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; N-heterocyclic carbene; ionic liquid; multi-component reaction; aerobic oxidation; OTHO; Organocatalysis; green chemistry;

    Abstract : The call for more sustainable processes in the chemical society has led to the development of the field of green chemistry. The Twelve Principles of Green Chemistry serve as guidelines for the design of processes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Strategies for cellulose fiber modification

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Fiber- och polymerteknologi

    Author : Per Persson; KTH.; [2004]
    Keywords : Candida antarctica lipase B; cationic catalysis; cellulose-binding module; dendrimer; enzymatic polymerization; fiber modification; silica-cast replica; sol-gel mineralization; organocatalysis; xyloglucan endotransglycosylase;

    Abstract : This thesis describes strategies for and examples ofcellulose fiber modification.The ability of an engineered biocatalyst, acellulose-binding module fused to theCandida antarcticalipase B, to catalyze ring-openingpolymerization of e-caprolactone in close proximity tocellulose fiber surfaces was explored.

  3. 3. Synthesis and Applications of P-Chirogenic and Axially Chiral P,N-Phosphines as Ligands and Organocatalyst

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Fiber- och polymerteknologi

    Author : Kristian Andersson; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; phosphoramidite; organocatalysis; aminophosphine; Nicholas reaction; asymmetric synthesis; phosphine; asymmetric hydrogenation; modular synthesis; P-chirogenic;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the enantioselective synthesis of chiral mixed phosphorous/nitrogen compounds and some of their applications in asymmetric synthesis. For the most part, the compounds are P-chirogenic, with the chirality centered on the phosphorous atom. The last part of the thesis deals with axially chiral phosphoramidites. READ MORE

  4. 4. Development of catalytic enantioselective C-C bond-forming and cascade transformations by merging homogeneous or heterogeneous transition metal catalysis with asymmetric aminocatalysis

    University dissertation from Sundsvall : Mid Sweden University

    Author : Samson Afewerki; Mittuniversitetet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; asymmetric catalysis; transition metals; aldehydes; heterogeneous catalysis; amino acid; organocatalysis; α-allylation; β-alkylation; dynamic transformations; polysubstituted; carbocycles; spirocyclic oxindoles; all-carbon quaternary stereocenters;

    Abstract : Chiral molecules play a central role in our daily life and in nature, for instance the different enantiomers or diastereomers of a chiral molecule may show completely different biological activity. For this reason, it is a vital goal for synthetic chemists to design selective and efficient methodologies that allow the synthesis of the desired enantiomer. READ MORE

  5. 5. Aerobic Oxidative N-Heterocyclic Carbene Catalysis via Multistep Electron Transfer - Method Development and Applications

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Anton Axelsson; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; N-heterocyclic carbene; asymmetric synthesis; esterification; glycerol; electron transfer mediator; green chemistry; telescoped reaction; Organocatalysis; aerobic oxidation; dihydropyranone;

    Abstract : Oxidation reactions are ubiquitous in synthetic chemistry, but generally suffer from formation of large amounts of potentially toxic byproducts. Aerial oxygen represents an ideal oxidant since it is inexpensive, non-toxic and only forms water as a byproduct. READ MORE
