Abstract not available
Quantification of rhodium in series of inorganic and organometallic compounds
(University of the Free State, 2009-11)
The main objective of this research was to establish an analytical method using inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES) to accurately quantify and optimize the percentage recovery of rhodium. ...
Synthesis, electrochemical, kinetic and thermodynamic studies of new ruthenocene-containing betadiketonato rhodium(I) complexes with biomedical applications
(University of the Free State, 2004-05)
English: New ruthenocene-containing β -diketones 1-Ruthenocenyl-4,4,4,-trifluorobutan-1,3-dione [Hrctfa, pKa / = 7.31(3)], 1-ruthenocenylbutan-1,3-dione [Hrca, pKa / = 10.22(4)] 1-ruthenocenyl-3- phenylpropan-1,3-dione ...
Rhoduim phosphine catalysed hydroformylation
(University of the Free State, 2005-12)
English: The aim of this study was to investigate hydroformylation reactions using phosphine modified rhodium catalyst systems. Comparisons between the traditional monodentate PPh3 ligand and the bidentate xantphos ligand ...
The characterisation and kinetic study of rhodium(I) and iridium(I) triazole complexes
(University of the Free State, 2000-11)
English: A number of triazolecyclooctadienemetal(l) complexes of the type [M(LL')(cod)] (where M = Ir or Rh and LL' represents the different bidentate N-N'- donor atom ligands, such as bpt-Nl+ and bpt) as well as their ...
