Aqueous Organometallic Catalysis: Nitrile Hydration Catalyzed by Ruthenium(II) 1,3,5-triaza-7-phosphaadamantane (PTA) Derived Complexes
This dissertation investigates the synthesis and characterization of ruthenium complexes containing water-soluble 1,3,5-triaza-7-phosphaadamantane (PTA) and PTA derived ligands for the application of aqueous phase nitrile ...
Synthesis, Characterization, and Reactivity of the Half-Sandwich Ruthenium (II) Hydride Complexes of 1,3,5-Triaza-7-Phosphaadamantane
A new water-soluble bis-PTA ruthenium (II) hydride complex, IndRu(PTA)2H, is obtained by conversion of the mixed-phosphine ruthenium complex IndRu(PTA)(PPh3)Cl into IndRu(PTA)(PPh3)H followed by addition of 1,3,5-triaza- ...
Organic and Organometallic Catalysts for Aqueous Nitrile Hydration and Carbon-Carbon Bond Forming Reactions
This dissertation investigates the ability of the phosphine 1,3,5-triaza-7-phosphaadamantane (PTA) and derivatives to serve as either organocataysts or ancillary ligands coordinated to transition metal catalysts. PTA and ...
ortho-Tolyl(trifluoromethyl)carbenes:Generation, Calculations, and Reactions through Quantum Mechanical Tunneling
We synthesized o-tolyl(trifluoromethyl)diazirine, trideuteriomethyl-o-tolyl(trifluoromethyl)diazirine and p-methoxy-o-tolyl(trifluoromethyl)diazirine precursors and generated the corresponding carbene species photochemically ...
Synthesis and Coordination Chemistry of Water-soluble Phosphines: Application to Ru-Catalyzed Hydration of Nitriles in Aqueous and Biphasic Media
This dissertation investigates the synthesis and characterization of a series of 1,3,5-triaza-7-phosphaadamantane (PTA) derivatives and their ruthenium arene complexes as potential water-soluble catalysts for aqueous and ...
