Investigations of e-h bond activation processes involving aluminium and gallium

Abstract:

This thesis examines the interaction of hydrides of the group 13 metals aluminium and gallium with transition metal centres. Furthermore, a gallium-based system is developed which activates a wide range of E-H bonds, with the product of H2 activation found to act as a catalyst for the reduction of CO2 to a methanol derivative.

Chapter 3 details the synthesis of a number of alane and gallane adducts of expanded-ring N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) ligands, which ar...
