  • The Tamura Cycloaddition: Mechanism and Enantiocontrol 

    LOCKETT-WALTERS, BRUCE (Trinity College Dublin. School of Chemistry. Discipline of Chemistry, 2019)
    This thesis documents attempts to employ succinimide derivatives as ‘anhydride surrogates’ in the organocatalytic cycloaddition between aryl succinic anhydrides and various electrophiles previously developed in our research ...
  • Crystal Engineering Study of Porphyrins, DPMs, BODIPYs, and Cubanes 

    FLANAGAN, KEITH JONATHAN (Trinity College Dublin. School of Chemistry. Discipline of Chemistry, 2019)
    This thesis consists of three topics, each covering an aspect of crystal engineering: for porphyrins (Chapter 1), BODIPYs and tris(dipyrrinato)metal(III) complexes (Chapter 2), and cubanes (Chapter 3). Each chapter contains ...
  • Nanometer-size metal complexes : magnetic materials and DNA probes 

    Di Trapani, Antonella (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Chemistry, 2004)
    The work described in this thesis was carried out as part of the European TMR Network “Nanometer-size metal complexes” (Contract N ERBMRXCT980226). The synthesis of Cr(III) homoleptic and heteroleptic polypyridyl complexes ...
  • Aspects of supramolecular chemistry : molecular helicates and coordination polymers 

    Conerney, Brian (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Chemistry, 2003)
    The research presented in this thesis lies within the general area of supramolecular and coordination chemistry. There are two facets to the work presented herein. Firstly, the syntheses and characterisation of novel ...
  • Acylative cleavage of some cyclic ethers and study of a novel potassium complex 

    Butler, Gillian (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Chemistry, 2003)
    Chapter 1 describes ring-opening reactions of cyclic ethers that are described in the literature. The extensive work carried out on tetrahydrofuran is discussed, but it is noted that reactions involving 2,5-dihydrofuran ...
