A novel series of titanocene dichloride derivatives: synthesis, characterization and assessment of their cytotoxic properties
Although cis-PtCl2(NH3)2 (cisplatin) has been widely used as a chemotherapeutic agent, its use can be accompanied by toxic side effects and the development of drug resistance. Consequently, much research has been focused ...
Late and early transition metal-catalyzed homo and copolymerizations studies of olefins and polar monomers
The aims of this work were two-fold. The first part of this thesis involves the synthesis of the Brookhart’s diimine catalyst [Pd(N-N)Me(Et2O)]+ (1) (N-N = (2,6-(i-Pr)2C6H3)-N=CH2CH2=N-(2,6-(i-Pr)2C6H3)) and an ...
NOVEL GROUP 4, 9, 10, AND 12 COMPLEXES OF INDENYL-DERIVED YLIDES
The coordination chemistry of the phosphonium-1-indenylide (PHIN) ligand methyldiphenylphosphonium-1-indenylide (1-C9H6PMePh2, I) has been studied, and a new phosphonium-1-indenylide (PHIN) ligand methyldiphenylphosphoni ...
The Synthesis and Characterization of Phosphonium Indenylide Complexes of Ruthenium(II)
Phosphonium indenylides (PHIN) are a promising, yet relatively unexplored class of transition metal ligands. The ylidic resonance structure b of this compound is isoelectronic with the cyclopentadienyl ligand which is ...
N-Heterocyclic and Mesoionic Carbene Complexes of Rhodium and Palladium: Coordination Chemistry and Catalysis
Dimeric rhodium N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) complexes [Rh(NHC)(C2H4)Cl]2 react with a variety of other neutral donors to form heteroleptic complexes [(L)Rh(NHC)(C2H4)Cl] (L = phosphine, pyridine) or [(L)Rh(NHC)Cl] (L = ...
