Attempts to Synthesize Cyclic Group 8 Metallaesters


Thompson, Douglas Kelvin (1986) Attempts to Synthesize Cyclic Group 8 Metallaesters. Master's thesis, California Institute of Technology. doi:10.7907/24t5-yc44.


In studying a proposed carbon monoxide reduction scheme an attempt has been made to synthesize bifunctional group 8 transition metal carbonyl complexes containing intramolecular nucleophiles. The incorporation of alkoxide nucleophiles through cyclopentadienyl ligands was hoped to encourage attack on carbonyl ligands thereby forming cyclic metallaesters. The attempts to synthesize these substituted cyclopentadienyl group 8 transition metal complexes have thus far been unsuccessful.
