(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2003-04)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This study comprises the preparation and characterisation of various novel organometallic species of gold(I) by employing a range of anionic group 6 metal Fischer-type carbene complexes and group 6 ...
A DFT study of the catalytic hydrocyanation of ethylene with nickel complexes
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2005-12)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: DFT calculations employing the B3LYP functional were done to investigate the mechanism for the Ni-catalyzed hydrocyanation of ethylene as proposed by Tolman. Although this reaction is an important industrial ...
