Mechanistic investigations of stoichiometric and catalytic Pt-mediated oxidative functionalization at a proximal boron center
The focus of the work detailed in this dissertation is the investigation of mechanism and catalytic applications of Pt complexes supported by novel anionic di(2-pyridyl)borate ligands. It was found that oxidation of ...
DIRHODIUM CAPROLACTAMATE CATALYZED OXIDATIONS BY TERT-BUTYL HYDROPEROXIDE. FROM MECHANISMS TO NEW METHODOLOGIES
Dirhodium caprolactamate, Rh<sub>2</sub>(cap)<sub>4</sub>, is a very efficient catalyst for the generation of the <italic>tert</italic>-butylperoxy radical from <italic>tert</italic>-butyl hydroperoxide, and the ...
ELECTRONIC MODIFICATION WITHIN THE WELL-ESTABLISHED CPAM FRAMEWORK AS A MEANS TOWARD INCREASED REACTIVITY
Early transition metals (group IV-VI) supported by the pentamethylcyclopentadienyl-amidinate mixed ligand set (CPAM) have been found to enable a number of important chemical transformations including (living) coordinative ...
Solid electrolyte interphases on graphite anodes and sulfur cathodes
This dissertation describes chemical compositions and fundamental mechanisms of formation of solid electrolyte interphase (SEI) layers on a graphite anode and a microporous carbon/sulfur cathode. Direct analysis on the ...
NOVEL PLATINUM COMPLEXES SUPPORTED BY SULFONATED CNN PINCER LIGANDS RELEVANT TO AEROBIC METHANE FUNCTIONALIZATION CHEMISTRY
Mild and selective aerobic methane functionalization has always been a challenge. Shilov developed a PtII based system that has a potential to solve the problem, but the non-practical PtIV oxidant needs to be substituted ...
