Description: Bismuth reagents have proven to be effective catalysts for a wide variety of reactions in organic chemistry. In order to study optimal tether lengths between Lewis basic sites on ligands, coordination studies of various organic compounds with Bi(III) salts are described. The use of BiBr3 in the synthesis of tetrahydropyran moieties with distinct stereochemistry was also studied. These investigations have also attempted to shed light on the ambiguity surrounding the method of action behind Bi(III) salts' catalytic processes.
Degree: Bachelors of Science in Chemistry
