Reaction development and mechanistic investigation of rhodium-catalyzed pyridine synthesis via C-H activation
Contributor:Neely, Jamie M.
Described herein are two complementary rhodium-catalyzed methods for the synthesis of substituted pyridines from unsaturated oxime derivatives and alkenes. In the first, formal [4+2] cycloaddition of O-pivaloyl α, ...
Conversion of lipid biomass to liquid hydrocarbons via pericyclic decarboxylations of α,β- and β,γ-unsaturated fatty acids using polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) solvent systems
Development of a new process for converting lipid biomass, containing α,β- and β,γ-unsaturated fatty acids, to liquid hydrocarbon fuels (LHF) of varying carbon number is described in this dissertation. The theme for LHF ...
Utilizing silicon for the synthesis of tri- and tetrasubstituted olefins
Contributor:Rooke, Douglas Alexander
Functionalized organosilanes serve an important role as reactive precursors for a number of synthetic transformations. Consequently there is still great use for the development of new methods that allow for facile and ...
