Kinetics and mechanism of intermolecular enyne metathesis
In chapter one of this dissertation the kinetics and mechanism of intermolecular enyne metathesis were investigated. Kinetic data were obtained using FT-IR spectroscopy by monitoring the terminal C-H stretching frequency ...
Enyne metathesis methods applied toward the total synthesis of natural products
Enyne metathesis is an extremely powerful method for the synthesis of conjugated 1,3-dienes that possess a variety of substitution patterns. This atom-economical transformation allows for complex functionality to be brought ...
Applications of enyne metathesis: Forming new methods and expanding scopes for use in natural product synthesis
Chapter 1. The biologically active epoxyquinoids are found to be inhibitors of cancer in tumor cell lines. In particular, the pentaketide dimer epoxyquinol A 1 , is known to inhibit angiogenesis (new blood vessel formation) ...
