|Title:||Structurally characterized normal and abnormal N-heterocyclic carbene based palladium and gold complexes and their catalysis||Authors:||Xu, Xiangya||Keywords:||DRNTU::Science::Chemistry::Organic chemistry::Heterocyclic compounds||Issue Date:||2011||Source:||Xu, X. (2011). Structurally characterized normal and abnormal N-heterocyclic carbene based palladium and gold complexes and their catalysis. Doctoral thesis, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.||Abstract:||N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs) have been extensively investigated and widely used as more efficient ligands. The experimental and theoretical evidences showed that C4 or C5-bound NHCs (aNHCs) are stronger donor ligands than C2-bound NHCs (nNHCs). It is expected that the outstanding strong donor abilities of aNHCs have a great influence on catalysis. However the synthesis and catalytic activity of M-aNHC complexes have not been thoroughly investigated till now compared to those of M-nNHC complexes. The objectives of this thesis were to investigate that the aNHCs ligands in catalysis either using in situ generation system or well-defined M-aNHC complexes.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/46226||DOI:||10.32657/10356/46226||Fulltext Permission:||open||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
