Study of silyl protecting groups in anomerisation reactions: Total synthesis of a glycolipid from Plakortis simplex and its mimetics
(NUI Galway, 2019-02-04)
This thesis deals with anomerisation, which is, in other words, epimerisation at the anomeric centre, usually interpreted as being from the equatorial to the axial anomer. An objective was to enhance the knowledge of this ...
Carbohydrates in the synthesis of macrocycles and glycoclusters
(NUI Galway, 2019-01-28)
This thesis deals with efforts to generate new bioactive organic compounds. The main focus has been on the use of carbohydrate building blocks for synthesis of both macrocyclic compounds and glycoclusters for biological ...
Heterocyclic chemistry: Controlled unmasking of nitric oxide and nitroxides
(NUI Galway, 2019-11-29)
Nitric oxide (NO) is a gaseous free radical with medicinally significant properties. The NO-releasing prodrug, isosorbide-5-mononitrate (Is5N), is long established for the treatment of angina pectoris. Nitroxides are organic ...
