Synthetic applications of arene chromium tricarbonyl complexes
This thesis investigates the use of arene chromium complexes as phenyl cation synthons in the synthesis of homochiral N-phenylamino esters, and the dianion formation of a series of complexed aryl ethers.
Chapter 1 reviews the properties of arene chromium tricarbonyl complexes and discusses in detail the ability of some of these complexes to undergo nucleophilic aromatic substitution.
Chapter 2 outlines the biological importance of homochiral N-phenylamino e...Expand abstract
