    • Modelling of Grubbs type precatalysts with bidentate hemilabile ligands 

      Raymakers, Maria de Fatima Marques (North-West University, 2012)
      Metathesis is a valuable reaction for the production of new alkenes. In the last 50 years, heterogeneous as well as homogeneous catalysts have been used for this reaction. In the homogeneous category are the very successful ...
    • On the mechanism of homogeneous alkene metathesis : a computational study 

      Du Toit, Jean Isabelle (North-West University, 2012)
      A mechanism for alkene metathesis has been proposed by Chauvin, wherein metal carbenes act as catalysts for the reaction. The use and discovery of Fischer-, Tebbe-, Grubbs- and Schrock-type metal carbenes have to a certain ...
