Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Iminium ion catalysis: Use of the α-effect in the acceleration of the Diels-Alder reaction

Cavill, Julie L. and Peters, Jens-Uwe and Tomkinson, Nicholas C. O. (2003) Iminium ion catalysis: Use of the α-effect in the acceleration of the Diels-Alder reaction. Chemical Communications (6). pp. 728-729. ISSN 1359-7345

Abstract

The α-effect can be used in the acceleration of the Diels-Alder reaction between a series of dienes and electron deficient dienophiles using iminium ion catalysis, providing a novel mol. scaffold capable of performing this class of catalytic process. [on SciFinder(R)]
