  1. 1. Synthesis of Organoboronic Acids and Applications in Asymmetric Organocatalysis

    Author : Sybrand Jonker; Kálmán Szabó; Jörg Pietruszka; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Boronic acid; BINOL; allylboration; propargylation; homologation; stereoselective synthesis; asymmetric synthesis; organocatalysis; allylboronic acid; allenylboronic acid; Organic Chemistry; organisk kemi;

    Abstract : Allyl- and allenylboronic acids are valuable reagents in organic synthesis due to their configurational stability and high reactivity. Few allyl- and allenylboronates are commercially available. Therefore, both the preparation and synthetic application of these organoboronic acids are subjects of study. READ MORE

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

    Author : Linda Ta; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : 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

    Author : Per Persson; KTH; []
    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.

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

    Author : Kristian Andersson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    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

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

    Author : Samson Afewerki; Armando Córdova; MICHELANGELO GRUTTADAURIA; Mittuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; 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
