  • Enantioselective organocatalytic cycloaddition reactions between enolisable anhydrides and imines 

    GUTIÉRREZ COLLAR, AARÓN (Trinity College Dublin. School of Chemistry. Discipline of Chemistry, 2019)
    Cycloaddition reactions between enolisable anhydrides and imines have long been known as excellent tools for the synthesis of natural products. The racemic version is well known to be capable of providing products with ...
  • The Synthesis and Characterisation of Fused Aromatic Hydrocarbons and Their Material and Ligand Applications 

    LARKIN, EUGENE JAMES (Trinity College Dublin. School of Chemistry. Discipline of Chemistry, 2019)
    This thesis details the synthesis of various extended, aromatic ligands and investigates their behaviour in a number of different applications. The work carried out represents a contribution to the understanding of the ...
  • 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 ...
