  1. 1. Asymmetric Catalysis : Ligand Design and Conformational Studies

    Author : Kristina Hallman; KTH; []
    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

    Author : Juhanes Aydin; Kálmán J. Szabó; Oleg V. Ozerov; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; pincer; palladium; catalysis; chiral; asymmetric; palladium IV; allylation; aldol; aminoacid; C-H functionalization; cross-coupling; homoallylic; heck reaction; tridentate ligand; Chemistry; 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

    Author : Ulf Bremberg; KTH; []
    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.
