Biotransformations of water insoluble substrates in aqueous, two-phase and encapsulated systems /
(Brock University, 1999-05-21)
The biotransformation of water insoluble substrates by mammalian and bacterial cells has been problematic, since these whole cell reactions are primarily performed in an aqueous environment The implementation of a ...
Asymmetric cyclopropanation via catalysts incorporating the 1,4-diol ligands and the newly designed dioxaborolane /
(Brock University, 2000-07-14)
The development of new methodology for the asymmetric synthesis of chiral organic compounds is a major focus in modem organic chemistry. The use of chiral catalysts is replacing chiral auxiliaries as a new tool for synthetic ...
Synthesis of isotope-labelled methoxypyrazine compounds as internal standards and quantitative determination of aroma methoxypyrazines in water and wines by solid-phase extraction with isotope dilution-GC-MS /
(Brock University, 2005-06-15)
An efficient way of synthesizing the deuterium labelled analogues of three methoxypyrazine compounds: 2-d3-methoxy-3-isopropylpyrazine, 2-d3-methoxy-3- isobutylpyrazine, and 2-d3-methoxy-3-secbutylpyrazine, has been ...
Towards the enantioselective synthesis of lycoricidine alkaloids /
(Brock University, 1998-05-21)
Two efficient, regio- and stereo controlled synthetic approaches to the synthesis of racemic analogs of pancratistatin have been accomplished and they serve as the model systems for the total synthesis of optically active ...
Modifications to the Suzuki reaction and mechanistic insights on the NBS mediated cleavage of benzylidene acetals /
(Brock University, 2003-07-14)
One of the most challenging tasks for a synthetic organic chemist today, is the development of chemo, regio, and stereoselective methodologies toward the total synthesis of macromolecules. r . The objective of my thesis ...
Phospha-adamantane ligands and phosphorous ionic liquids for palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions /
(Brock University, 2004-07-14)
New and robust methodologies have been designed for palladiumcatalyzed cross-coupling reactions involving a library of novel tertiary phosphine ligands incorporating a phospha-adamantane framework. The secondary ...
