  1. 1. Transition Metal Hydrides : Biomimetic Studies and Catalytic Applications

    Author : Jesper Ekström; Hans Adolfsson; Jonathan Williams; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; transition metals; catalysis; bioinorganic chemistry; hydrides; Organic chemistry; Organisk kemi; Organic Chemistry; organisk kemi;

    Abstract : In this thesis, studies of the nature of different transition metal-hydride complexes are described. The first part deals with the enantioswitchable behaviour of rhodium complexes derived from amino acids, applied in asymmetric transfer hydrogenation of ketones. READ MORE

  3. 3. Interaction of C60 with transition metals for thin film applications

    Author : Lars Norin; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Chemistry; C60; transition metals; fulleride; carbide; epitaxy; Kemi; Chemistry; Kemi; Inorganic Chemistry; oorganisk kemi;

    Abstract : The fullerene molecule C60 is known to undergo many different chemical reactions, including intercalation of alkali- and alkaline earth metals. Relatively little is still known about the reaction between transition metals and C60, and the objective of this thesis was therefore-to investigate the chemical interaction between C60 and some group IV-VI transition metals.

  4. 4. Characterization and Functionalization of 2D Overlayers Adsorbed on Transition Metals

    Author : May Ling Ng; Nils Mårtensson; Alexei Preobrajenski; Anne Borg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; h-BN; graphene; transition metals; nanomesh; functionalization; PES; NEXAFS; STM; LEED; Condensed matter physics; Kondenserade materiens fysik; Physics with spec. in Atomic; Molecular and Condensed Matter Physics; Fysik med inriktning mot atom- molekyl- och kondenserande materiens fysik;

    Abstract : Two-dimensional layered materials, namely monolayer hexagonal boron nitride and graphene were grown by CVD on various transition metals. The physical and chemical properties of these systems were characterized systematically using synchrotron-based spectroscopic techniques, scanning tunneling microscopy and low energy electron diffraction.
