Dow Seminar in Inorganic Chemistry: Heterolytic C-H and N-H/O-H Activation by First Row Transition Metal Complexes: Applications to the Guerbet Process
Seminar | April 13 | 4-5 p.m. | 120 Latimer Hall
Recent work in acceptorless dehydrogenation reactions of H-C-O-H and H-C-N-H bonds will be presented. These examples include complexes of iron, cobalt, and nickel. Extensions to C-C hydrogenation are also examined. A manganese pincer complex is shown to be active for the Guerbet reaction for the conversion of ethanol to butanol. A tandem catalyst system has been developed that gives very high... More >
