Transcript of Chemistry Thesis

Future - finish a synthesis of the desired ligand
- complex ligand to Iron Center
- test for catalytic activity and hydrogenation reactions Catalysis Development of Iron-Based Catalysts
for the Homogeneous Hydrogenation of C=X and C=X Ligand Synthesis 1st Approach - simple method, known for related compounds** Ullman Reaction (3rd Approach) - another type of cross-coupling, usually performed at high temperature Suzuki Cross-Coupling (2nd Approach) - known to be effective for forming bipyridines Metal
Complexing Dioxide Bipyridine - clearly no Bipyridine
- symmetric molecule
- clean Lit mp: 297C
Experimental mp:289C H-NMR H-NMR revealed a complex mixture and the decision was made it proceed with reaction. Borate intermediate was synthesized according to Billingsley and Buckwald. Corresponded with mp and H-NMR literature values provided Why Asymmetric Hydrogenation Problem - Analysis by H-NMR revealed a complex mixture
- Intended ligand was not the major product

- >1,000,000 TON (turnover number, measure of catalyst productivity)

- 79% enantiomeric selection

- 40% reduction in application mass Toxicity My Focus Ultimate Goal a. synthesis of complex 1
b. test in hydrogenation reactions a. synthesis of hydroxy bipyridine
b. attach to metal center Possible Impurity Fe < $0.10/mol - H-NMR revealed peaks analogous to starting material
- Should adjust conditions and utilize fresher solvents in future experiments
- Would be most efficient method
- want to attached ligand to metal center similar to Pandrey in Synthesis of Some Novel Iodo(n-cyclopentadienyl)-iron Di-amine Complexes

- Completed to model two reactions with ligands: ethylene diamine and bipyridine

Reduction of Waste Shvo's Catalyst Casey's Catalyst - did not maintain reactivity of Shvo's Catalyst
- high activity for ketones, aldehydes, diketones, and imines. - Various attempts, but by H-NMR we were unable to distinguish our product
