• Alkene oxidation by platinum (II) oxo/hydroxo complexes 

    Weliange, Nandita Malathi (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2011)
    The facile reaction between tetranuclear Pt-­‐oxo complex [(COD)4Pt4(μ2-­‐O)2Cl2]2[BF4]2 (1) and norbornene (NB) yields the stable platinaoxetane [(COD)2Pt2(OC7H10)Cl][BF4] (2) in quantitative yield. A rapid reaction ...
  • Alkene-oxo and alkene-alkene coupling on Pt(II) 

    Szuromi, Endre, 1974- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2005)
    Tetranuclear Pt(II) oxo-complex [(COD)4Pt4([mu]3-O)2Cl2](BF4)2 (1) (COD = 1,5- cyclooctadiene) was found to readily react with a variety of alkenes (ethylene, norbornene, propylene and cyclopentene). The most significant ...
  • Bromine photoelimination from organoplatinum(IV) complexes 

    Raphael Karikachery, Alice (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2014)
    With burgeoning population growth and widespread economic development world energy consumption is constantly on the rise. Currently most of our energy requirements are met through fossil fuels which are non-renewable. The ...
  • Organo nickel and platinum chemistry at the edge of corannulene 

    Lee, Han Baek, 1974- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2007)
    The reaction of corannulene bromide with "NiL₂" or "PtL₂" (L = PEt₃ or PMe₃) gives corannulenyl complexes of [sigma] - bonded nickel and platinum, cis- and trans-MBrL₂R (M = Ni, Pt, R = C₂₀H₉, C₂₀H₆Br₃). Mono and dinuclear ...
  • Synthesis, characterisation photophysical and DFT studies of 2,2'-diphenylenegold(III) diethyldithiocarbamate 

    Nilakantan, Lakshmi (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2012)
    Cyclometalated gold(III) complexes have been demonstrated to show electroluminescence properties and have been employed as electrophosphorescent materials in organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs). The efficiency of OLED ...
  • Sythesis, characterization and reactivity of platinum (II) peroxo, alkoxide and triflate compunds 

    Moody, Morgan A. (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2012)
    The chemistry of a collection of platinum(II) compounds, including peroxo, alkoxide and triflate compounds, were synthesized and studied. This involved a rather wide range of platinum chemistry, but the overall mindset was ...
