An Ab Initio density functional study of the structure and stability of transition metal ozone complexes
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2002-12)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: A thorough search through the literature as well as through the Cambridge Crystallographic Structural Database resulted in no examples of a neutral ozone acting as ligand in a complex with any metal. ...
α-Diimine complexes of transition metals for the polymerisation of lower α-olefins
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2005-12)
In this study several potential polymerisation catalysts were synthesised. This was accomplished by coordinating α-diimine ligands such as N,N'-diferrocenyldiazabutadiene (DFDAB), N,N'-dimesityldiazabutadiene (DMDAB) as ...
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). ...
