Synthesis and Reactivity of Electroactive Carbon Sulfide Ligands and Studies on Modifications of Nucleic Acids Faculty Dissertations (2001)
The beginning of the thesis focuses on the synthesis and interconversion of two anionic carbon sulfide ligands, namely C2 S4 2- (tetrathiooxalate, TTO) and C4 S6 2- . The synthesis of TTO was accomplished by ...

Electrochemical Synthesis of Tetraethylammonium Tetrathiooxalate Science and Mathematics Faculty Publications (2014)
Tetrathiooxalate was originally claimed to result from the reduction of CS2 with sodium. Jeroschewski demonstrated a practical synthesis of C2S42- by suppressing its condensation with CS2. His method involves the electrolytic reduction of CS2 in ...

Intramolecular Exchange of Coordinated and Dangling Phosphine Groups in Pentacarbonyl[(diphenylphosphino)(di-p-tolylphosphino)methane]tungsten(0) Organometallics (2012)
Equilibrium constants and rates have been determined for the isomerization of the linkage isomers (OC)5W[κ1-PPh2CH2P(p-tolyl)2] (5) and (OC)5W[κ1-P(p-tolyl)2CH2PPh2] (6). It is proposed that this intramolecular exchange involves a nucleophilic attack of the pendant phosphine on ...
An Organometallic Route to Oligonucleotides Containing Phosphoroselenoate ChemBioChem (2002)
Unlike the widespread use of phosphorothioates in nucleic acid chemistry, complementary research on phosphoroselenoates has been severely limited. Previous routes to DNA and RNA that contain phosphoroselenoates employ elemental Se and KSeCN as Se transfer ...
Aufbau Approach to Multimetallic Ensembles Based on Tetrathiooxalate: [Cp*4Rh4(C2S4)2]2+, [Cp*3Rh2Ru(C2S4)]+, and [Cp*6Rh6(C2S4)2]4+ Organometallics (2000)
Experiments aimed at the characterization of new coordination modes for tetrathiooxalate (TTO) are described. Cyclic voltammetric (CV) measurements on Cp*2Rh2(C2S4) (1) revealed an irreversible oxidation as part of an ECE process that results in the ...
Monoindenyl Titanium Alkyl Halides. The Synthesis and Molecular structures of (h5-C9H7)TiBr3, (h5-C9H7)Ti(CH3)Br2, and (h5-C9H7)Ti(CH3)Cl2 Inorganica Chimica Acta (1999)
The monoindenyl titanium tribromide (η5-C9H7)TiBr3 (1), has been prepared from the interaction of TiBr4 and Bu3Sn&z.sbnd;C9H7. The monomethyl species (η5-C9H7)Ti(CH3)Br2 (2), and (η5-C9H7)Ti(CH3)Cl2 (3), have been efficiently prepared from the interaction of the trihalides with ...
