James Walton

Keywords: Homogeneous catalysis Organometallics Ruthenium Pi-arene metal complexes Expertise: We are studying Ru(η6-arene)Ln complexes as catalysts. Binding of arenes to Ru increases their reactivity towards several processes (SNAr, C–H activation, Trifluoromethylation etc.). However, the Ru–(η6-arene) bond is strong and a stoichiometric amount of Ru is required. Our goal is to develop systems in which…
