New transition metal carbene complexes for application in homogeneous catalysis
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2005-12)
This study comprises the preparation and full characterisation of new carbene complexes of group 10 metals (Ni, Pd or Pt), the group 9 metal, rhodium, as well as group 6 metals (Cr and/or W). N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) ...
Carbene ligand and complex design directed towards application in synthesis and homogeneous catalysis
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2008-12)
Alkylated acetonitrile that forms during the synthesis of the sulfonium salt, [(Me3)2(MeS)S][BF4], is involved in the formation of new , -unsaturated Fischer-type carbene complexes from (CO)5M=C(OMe)CH2Li (M = Cr, W). ...
