Title: The activation and fixation of dinitrogen by iron phosphine complexes
Issue Date: Jan-2017
Publisher: Imperial College London;Chemistry
Description: Dinitrogen gas is the source of all biologically and industrially fixed nitrogen, yet the activation of this highly unreactive molecule is a significant challenge in modern chemistry. The current industrial route to fixed nitrogen compounds is the Haber-Bosch process, a reaction which has remained largely unaltered since the early 20th century. The catalytic fixation of N2 by molecular Fe complexes, by contrast, is a young and rapidly developing field, yet thus far few complexes can effect this transformation. This thesis explores the reactivity of electron-rich Fe phosphine complexes as potential catalysts for this transformation.;Open Access
