Tungsten alkyl alkylidyne and bis(alkylidene) complexes their unusual inter-conversion and reactions with phosphines, dioxygen and water /

by (Laurel Anne Ray), 1977- Morton

Abstract (Summary)
This dissertation focuses on the unique chemistry of d0 alkylidyne and bis(alkylidene) complexes with ?-silicon atoms. The goals of this dissertation research were to prepare and characterize these new d0 transition metal complexes, to study their reactivities including thermodynamics and kinetics of the inter-conversion between the alkylidyne and bis(alkylidene) complexes, and to explore the mechanism of the reactions of O2 or water with d0 alkylidyne complexes. A summary of the research in this dissertation is provided in Chapter 1.
