  1. 1. Transition metal-catalyzed hydrogen transfer processes

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholms Universitet

    Author : Oscar Verho; Stockholms universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The first part describes the synthesis of new analogues of Bäckvall’s catalyst with varying electronic properties and their application in the racemization of sec-alcohols. The racemization involves two key steps: (i) β-hydride elimination (dehydrogenation of the alcohol) and (ii) hydride re-addition to the intermediate ketone. READ MORE

  2. 2. Transition Metal-Catalyzed Redox Reactions A Journey from Homogeneous Ruthenium to Heterogeneous Palladium Catalysis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Organic Chemistry, Stockholm University

    Author : Oscar Verho; Stockholms universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Organic Chemistry; organisk kemi;

    Abstract : The first part of the thesis covers the development and utilization of electronically modified (pentaarylcyclopentadienyl)Ru-complexes in the racemization of secondary alcohols. This study revealed that the electronic properties of the substrate were the main factors dictating whether β-hydride elimination or hydride re-addition becomes the rate-determining step of the racemization process.
