      Steven Diver Principal Investigator (2014-04-02)
      The starter grant award of the Chemistry Division to the State University of New York at Buffalo supports the research of Professor Steven T. Diver. The objective of the research is to identify new catalysts by an in vivo ...
    • Mechanism of Enyne Metathesis 

      Steven Diver Principal Investigator (2014-04-02)
      This award to Steven Diver and Jerome Keister of the State University of New York at Buffalo has as its goal the investigation of the reaction mechanism of enyne metathesis in a collaborative effort between an organic and ...
    • New Catalysts for Cis-Selective Metathesis: Agostic Interaction and Meso-N-Heterocyclic Carbenes 

      Steven Diver Principal Investigator (2014-04-02)
      This project will synthesize new catalysts for cis-selectivity in olefin metathesis. Two new, unexplored approaches will be taken in this project: (1) Use of agostic interactions in early transition metal Fischer carbene ...
    • Ruthenium Vinyl Carbene Reactivity 

      Steven Diver Principal Investigator (2014-04-02)
      The Chemical Catalysis Program supports Professors Steven T. Diver and Jerome B. Keister at the State University of New York (SUNY) at Buffalo who have proposed a research program that will focus on studying enyne metathesis, ...
