Metallacarboranes: Synthesis of Boron-Heteroatom Derivatives and Applications in Energy and Magnetism

 

by Ana Begoña Buades Martín, Inorganic Materials and Catalysis Lab, ICMAB-CSIC

Date: Thursday, 28 January 2021
Time: 10:00 am
Venue: Online session from the ICMAB Meeting Room. Register here to attend the Defense by Zoom. 

Abstract: This thesis starts to introduce the reader to the boron chemistry world with the synthesis and characterization of the first boron compound in 1912. Then, we show the potential of theoretical and experimental chemistry to understand the nature of the B-C bond formation in few seconds, using trytilbromide instead of the usual palladium catalyst or iodinate. In addition, the research provides the synthesis, spectroscopic and electrochemical characterization of bipyridine derivatives of COSAN and/or FESAN to study the number of electrons able to be accepted in reversible way. We also present the highest chlorinated derivatives of COSAN synthesized since the date. The research includes a study of their behaviour as electrocatalysts for water electrolysis and catalytic power, demonstrating the high potential of these compounds for water oxidation processes. Finally, we take advantage of the unpair electron of FESAN to study its properties as Single-Molecule Magnet (SMM) and assess its potential applications as a qubit for quantum computing.
