Transition metal catalysis in the presence of fluorinating reagents
In this thesis, the effect of fluorinating reagents on a selection of transition metal-mediated organic transformations was investigated. The first four chapters are focused on gold-catalysed nucleophilic addition processes performed in the presence of “F⁺” sources.
Chapter 1 provides a general introduction to homogeneous gold catalysis and summarises the aims and objectives of the project.
The effect of the electrophilic fluorinating reagent Selectfluor (82) on the gold-cataly...Expand abstract
