Controlled ligand distortion and its consequences for structure, symmetry, conformation and spin-state preferences of iron(II) complexes

Kroll, Nicole; Theilacker, Kolja; Schoknecht, Marc; Baabe, Dirk; Wiedemann, Dennis; Kaupp, Martin; Grohmann, Andreas; Hörner, Gerald (2015)

The ligand-field strength in metal complexes of polydentate ligands depends critically on how the ligand backbone places the donor atoms in three-dimensional space. Distortions from regular coordin...

Palladium-catalysed hydroxylation and alkoxylation

Enthaler, Stephan; Company, Anna (2011)

The formation of oxygen–carbon bonds is one of the fundamental transformations in organic synthesis. In this regard the application of palladium-based catalysts has been extensively studied during ...

A straightforward zinc-catalysed reduction of sulfoxides to sulfides

Enthaler, Stephan (2011)

In the present study, the zinc-catalysed reduction of a variety of sulfoxides with silanes as reductant to the corresponding sulfide has been examined in detail. With the straightforward and commer...

Iron-based pre-catalyst supported on polyformamidine for C-C bond formation

Enthaler, Stephan; Krackl, Sebastian; Epping, Jan Dirk; Eckhardt, Björn; Weidner, Steffen M.; Fischer, Anna (2012)

In the present study the incorporation of iron into an organic polymer, composed of formamidine subunits [R–N[double bond, length as m-dash]C(H)–NH–R], has been examined. The catalytic ability of t...

Dual functionality of formamidine polymers, as ligands and as bases, in ruthenium-catalysed hydrogen evolution from formic acid

Enthaler, Stephan; Junge, Henrik; Fischer, Anna; Kammer, Anja; Krackl, Sebastian; Epping, Jan Dirk (2013)

In the present study, the ruthenium-catalysed decomposition of formic acid to yield hydrogen has been examined. A ruthenium complex modified polyformamidine network was used as a solid catalyst. As...

Enhanced catalytic performance of MnxOy-Na2WO4/SiO2 for the oxidative coupling of methane using an ordered mesoporous silica support

Yildiz, M.; Aksu, Y.; Simon, U.; Kailasam, K.; Görke, O.; Rosowski, F.; Schomäcker, R.; Thomas, A.; Arndt, S. (2014)

The oxidative coupling of methane is a highly promising reaction for its direct conversion. Silica supported MnxOy–Na2WO4 is a suitable catalyst for this reaction. In this study, a variety of diffe...
