Title: NHC-supported mixed halohydrides of aluminium and related studies
Author: Alexander, Sean Geoffrey
Issue Date: 2011
School/Discipline: School of Chemistry and Physics
Abstract: Chapter 1. General introduction This chapter comprises a comprehensive overview of group 13 chemistry, including the elements of group 13, the trihydrides of aluminium and gallium and their Lewis base adducts, and a brief overview of aluminium and gallium trihalides and their respective Lewis base adducts. Chapter 2. Lewis base adducts of group 13 mixed halide-hydrides This chapter consists of an overview of the existing mixed halohydrides of aluminium and gallium, and an introduction to carbenes, including NHCs. The synthesis and discussion of numerous new mixed halohydrides of aluminium and gallium is presented. Chapter 3. Selected reductions with mixed halohydride reagents This chapter discusses the application of compounds from Chapter 2 as organic reducing agents and comparison with literature concerning hydrometallation with trihydride congeners. Chapter 4. Triazenide complexes of alane and gallane This chapter includes the synthesis of several new triazene species and their precursors, and their application as support ligands for aluminium and gallium mono- and dihydrides. Chapter 5. This chapter includes the synthesis of several “super-bulky” NHCs, their precursor diazabutadienes and terphenyls, and preliminary use in coordination chemistry.
