Understanding our future through Open Access research about our past...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Centre for the Social History of Health & Healthcare (CSHHH), based within the School of Humanities, and considered Scotland's leading centre for the history of health and medicine.

Research at CSHHH explores the modern world since 1800 in locations as diverse as the UK, Asia, Africa, North America, and Europe. Areas of specialism include contraception and sexuality; family health and medical services; occupational health and medicine; disability; the history of psychiatry; conflict and warfare; and, drugs, pharmaceuticals and intoxicants.

Abstract

The absolute stereochemical configurations of a series of optically pure alkyne-Co2(CO)5PPh3 complexes and their corresponding cyclopentenones, derived from Pauson-Khand reaction with norbornene, have been established; an X-ray crystal structure of an optically pure cyclopentenone has facilitated this study. In turn, this has led to the unambiguous determination of the site of decarbonylation and alkene complexation when such monophosphine complexes are utilised in asymmetric Pauson-Khand processes.
