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 ...
