  1. 1. Chemistry of Carbon Nanostructures : Functionalization of Carbon Nanotubes and Synthesis of Organometallic Fullerene Derivatives

    Author : Claes-Henrik Andersson; Helena Grennberg; Nazario Martín León; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Carbon nanotubes; Fullerenes; Purification; Functionalization; Organometallic complexes; Kemi med inriktning mot organisk kemi; Chemistry with specialization in Organic Chemistry;

    Abstract : This thesis is based on two main parts. The first part concerns purification and functionalization of carbon nanotubes (papers I-III), and the second part is related to the synthesis of organometallic fullerene derivatives (papers IV-VII): Two oxidative methods involving aqueous nitric acid were compared with respect to their capability to introduce carboxylic groups into single walled carbon nanotubes, and several literature methods for esterification and amidation of these groups have been evaluated with focus on efficiency and reproducibility in forming covalently functionalized products soluble in organic media.

    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Organisk kemi; Organometallic chemistry; Metallorganisk kemi; Organic chemistry; Oorganisk kemi; Inorganic chemistry; Suzuki reaction; Stille reaction; catalysis; cyclometalation; C-H activation; PCP complex; POCOP ligand; PCP ligand; iridium; palladium; platinum;

    Abstract : Abstract The work presented in this thesis discusses synthesis of PCP-complexes and utilisations of such organometallic compounds in catalysis. The complexes, obtained by intramolecular Csp3-H activation, are based on the metals palladium, platinum and iridium. READ MORE

  3. 3. Catalysis in Dynamic Systems: Control within Molecular Reaction Networks

    Author : Fredrik Schaufelberger; Olof Ramström; Leonard Prins; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; systems chemistry; dynamic covalent chemistry; catalyst screening; reaction networks; organocatalysis; imine exchange; combinatorial chemistry; dynamic systemic resolution; feedback; error-correction; Morita-Baylis-Hillman reaction; C-H activation; H-bond catalysis; transamination; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : Life as we know it is based on complex networks of biochemical reactions that constantly interact within large dynamic systems. The field of systems chemistry uses chemical models to study how reaction networks – and thereby life – function on a molecular level. READ MORE

  4. 4. Quantum Chemical Modelling of Enzymatic and Organometallic Reactions

    Author : Ferran Planas; Fahmi Himo; Edina Rosta; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; DFT; enzyme; organometallic; mechanisms; Organic Chemistry; organisk kemi;

    Abstract : In this thesis, density functional theory (DFT) is employed in the study of two enzymes and two organometallic systems.First, the natural reaction mechanism, as well as the enantioselective formation of α-hydroxyketones catalysed by two thiamine diphosphate (ThDP)- dependent enzymes, namely benzoylformate decarboxylase (BFDC) and 2-succinyl-5-enolpyruvyl-6-hydroxy-3-cyclohexene-1-carboxylic-acid (SEPHCHC)- synthase (MenD), are investigated.

    Abstract : Various metal complexes have been used in medicine traditionally, although their use was often connected with mystery and with a lack of empirically (clinically) proven effect. In modern times, the development of biochemistry, bioinorganic and bioorganometallic chemistry allows us more in-depth understanding of biological action of metal containing substances. READ MORE
