Sammanfattning : This thesis covers the development of two new methods for the asymmetric reduction of ketones and ketone intermediates. The protocols developed are based on the use of a ruthenium pseudo-dipeptide catalyst that previously has been shown to be efficient and selective in the asymmetric reduction of carbonyl compounds.

2. Transport and Containment Chemistry of Ruthenium under Severe Accident Conditions in a Nuclear Power Plant
Sammanfattning : During a severe nuclear accident volatile elements and elements readily forming volatile compounds are the main concern regarding the release of radioactive material to the environment. As ruthenium is prone to form volatile oxides under severe nuclear accident conditions as well as having radiotoxic isotopes, it is one of the more important elements during such an accident. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : An increasing global energy demand requires alternative fuel sources. A promising method is artificial photosynthesis. Although, the artificial processes are different from the natural photosynthetic process, the basic principles are the same, i.e. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : DNA-binding of small synthetic ligands is of great importance in a number of different applications, from medicine to molecular biology. This thesis focuses on interactions between DNA and ruthenium(II) complexes, in particular the dimers [µ-bidppz(L)4Ru2]4+ (L=1,10-phenanthroline (P) or L=2,2-bipyridine (B)). LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Mechanistic studies on three different ruthenium-based catalysts have been performed. The catalysts have in common that they have been employed in hydrogen transfer reactions involving alcohols and ketones, amines and imines or both. LÄS MER
