  • Catalytic activity of cycloaurated complexes in the addition of 2-methylfuran to methyl vinyl ketone

    Kilpin, Kelly Joan; Jarman, Bevan P.; Henderson, William; Nicholson, Brian K. (Wiley, 2011-11)
    Cycloaurated gold(III) complexes derived from cycloaurated iminophosphorane, triphenylphosphine sulfide or selenide, or pyridylsulfonamide ligands have been assessed for their catalytic activity in the addition of 2-methylfuran ...
  • The Chemistry of Cycloaurated Complexes

    Kilpin, Kelly Joan (The University of Waikato, 2009)
    New cycloaurated complexes have been synthesised and characterised. The biological and catalytic activity (in the addition of 2-methylfuran to methyl vinyl ketone) of selected complexes was evaluated. New complexes reported ...
  • Cycloaurated GoId (III) complexes- Possible alternatives to cisplatin?

    Kilpin, Kelly Joan; Henderson, William (New Zealand Institute of Chemistry, 2009-07)
    The serendipitous discovery of the anti-tumour activity of cisplatin [cis-PtCI₂(NH₃)₂] in 1969 has led to increased interest in the development of new metal-based anti-cancer drugs. However, regardless of the large numbers ...
  • Cycloaurated triphenylphosphine-sulfide and –selenide

    Kilpin, Kelly Joan; Henderson, William; Nicholson, Brian K. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2010)
    The first examples of cycloaurated phosphine sulfides and triphenylphosphine selenide have been synthesised; these complexes are fairly rare examples of gold(III) complexes with potentially reducing sulfur- and selenium-donor ...
  • The cycloauration of pyridine-2-thiocarboxamide ligands

    Kilpin, Kelly Joan; Henderson, William; Nicholson, Brian K. (Elsevier BV, 2010)
    Reactions of H[AuCl₄] with N-substituted 2-pyridine thiocarboxamide ligands 2-(C₅H₄N)C(S)NHR (R= p-C₆H₄Me, CH₂Ph, Me, p-C₆H₄OMe) gave cycloaurated derivatives {(C₅H₄N)C(S)NR}AuCl₂, with the ligand bonded as the thiol ...
