  1. 1. Ruthenium-Catalyzed Asymmetric Transfer Hydrogenation

    Författare :Tove Slagbrand; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; allylic alcohols; asymmetric catalysis; isomerization; reduction; ruthenium;

    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. 2. Transport and Containment Chemistry of Ruthenium under Severe Accident Conditions in a Nuclear Power Plant

    Författare :Ivan Kajan; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; fission products; radiolysis; nuclear accident; containment; ruthenium tetroxide; ruthenium;

    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.

  3. 3. Development of Ruthenium Catalysts for Water Oxidation

    Författare :Tanja M. Laine; Björn Åkermark; Antoni Llobet; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; homogeneous catalysis; O-O bond formation; photocatalysis; ruthenium; water oxidation; Organic Chemistry; organisk kemi;

    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

  4. 4. DNA Interaction Dynamics of Ruthenium(II) Complexes

    Författare :Fredrik Westerlund; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; fluorescence; ruthenium; polarized spectroscopy; threading; sequence selectivity; photophysics; binding kinetics; DNA; intercalation;

    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

  5. 5. Mechanistic Studies on Ruthenium-Catalyzed Hydrogen Transfer Reactions

    Författare :Jenny B. Åberg; Jan-Erling Bäckvall; Charles P. Casey; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; mechanistic studies; catalysis; ruthenium; hydrogen transfer; racemization; transfer hydrogenation; alcohols; ketones; amines; imines; inner-sphere; outer-sphere; solvent cage effect; Organic chemistry; Organisk kemi; Organic Chemistry; organisk kemi;

    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
