Synthesis and Reactivity Studies of Square Pyramidal Complexes on Group 5 and 6 Metals for Nitrogen and Small Molecule Fixation
I have completed work in the Lavoie Group which has resulted in the synthesis of new square pyramidal complexes supported by the tert-butyl-substituted (ethenediylidene)tetraphenoxide “TPO” ligand system. Complexes 6, ...
Part I: Mechanistic Insight in Alkyl-Alkyl and Aryl-Aryl Negishi Cross-Coupling Part II: Large Scale Synthesis of NHC Precursors: 2,6-DI(3-Pentyl) Aniline and 2,6-DI (4-Heptyl) Aniline
Part I: An efficient method for alkyl-alkyl Negishi cross-coupling reaction of unactivated primary alkyl halides with higher-order zincate species (synthesized from dialkylzinc and a non-coordinating halide salt in situ) ...
Synthesis of Electron Deficient N-heterocyclic-carbenes and Activity of Imidazol-2-imine Thioureate Ligand on Group 10 Transition Metals
Previous work in the Lavoie group has resulted in the synthesis of new imidazol-2-imine ligands that have low activity towards ethylene polymerization due to their electron rich nature. In an attempt to alleviate this an ...
Synthesis of New Titanium Complexes Bearing a Bidentate Monoanionic Inversely-Polarized Phosphaalkene-Enolate Ligand and their Activity in Olefin Polymerization
The synthesis and characterization of several inversely-polarized phosphaalkenes, including the first ring-expanded inversely-polarized hydrido-phosphaalkene and imidazolidine-based inversely-polarized phosphaalkene-enolate ...
Novel Olefin Polymerization Pre-Catalyst Bearing an Inversely-Polarized Phosphaalkene Ethenolate Monoanionic Bidentate Ligand and its Polymerization Studies
The synthesis and structure elucidation of the first monoanionic bidentate ligand bearing an inversely-polarized phosphaalkene, its precursors and the first titanium complex bearing such ligand are herein reported. ...
