Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2018.

Hydrogen bonds are the most utilized non-covalent interactions in biological systems, due to their directionality, stability, reversibility and diversity. The weak strength of hydrogen-bond can be modified by combining several hydrogen bonds in the same unit, like in the melamine∙cyanuric/barbituric acid rosette-type system. Arene ruthenium metalla-assemblies have showed a great biological...

Synthesis, characterization and exploration of the catalytic, supramolecular and biological applications of dinuclear complexes

Johnpeter, Justin Paul Raj ; Therrien, Bruno (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2013.

The work presented in this thesis involves the synthesis and characterization of dinuclear ruthenium, rhodium and iridium complexes. The catalytic, supramolecular and biological applications of these dinuclear complexes will be discussed. In the first part, the synthesis of sawhorse-type diruthenium tetracarbonyl complexes and their catalytic applications in the supercritical carbon dioxide...
