Synthesis, crystal engineering, and properties of amino acid functionalised imides and their coordination polymers
thesisposted on 2023-06-14, 00:50 authored by WEI CAO
This thesis explores the structure, coordination chemistry, crystal engineering, and synthetic mechanism of amino acid substituted diimide ligands, and the properties of some of the materials which were formed. Two chiral coordination polymers were investigated for their ability to separate a small chiral alcohol, and demonstrated for the first time that 1D coordination polymers of this ligand class could be used for the resolution of enantiomers.
