Studies in Metallosupramolecular Chemistry
(University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 2008)
Metallosupramolecular chemistry involves the construction of nanoscale molecular assemblies by reacting metal atoms with bridging organic ligands. The metal atoms act as a type of molecular ‘glue’ binding together the ...
Aspects of Metallosupramolecular Chemistry
(University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 2009)
This thesis details the silver(I) coordination chemistry of thirty four alkene-containing ligands. The synthesis of thirty two of these ligands is described of which fifteen are unreported compounds. The ligands were ...
Total synthesis of the 7-3'-linked naphthylisoquinoline alkaloid ancistrocladidine
(University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 2001)
This thesis describes the first total synthesis of ancistrocladidine, a member of the naphthylisoquinoline class of natural products. In Chapter 1 the synthetic challenges presented by the naphthylisoquinoline alkaloids ...
Synthesis of nitrogenous heterocycles using transition metal-catalysed cyclization reactions
(University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 2005)
This thesis addresses the use of two general methods involving transition-metal catalyzed cyclization for the synthesis of nitrogenous heterocycles. The amino-Heck reaction was applied to the synthesis of spiroimines, ...
Phosphoryl transfer reactions catalysed by Fe(II)
(University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 2000)
This thesis probes the catalysis of phosphoryl transfer reactions by Fe(II), with particular emphasis on biologically relevant examples. The results of this thesis may have important implications for the origin of metabolism ...
The synthesis and study of bridging heterocyclic ligands
(University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 2003)
This thesis describes the synthesis and study of thirty four multidentate heterocyclic bridging ligands, twenty four of which are new compounds. A majority of these ligands incorporate a di-2-pyridyl coordination motif and ...
