Abstract

This project aims to explore the ability of organic molecules to transfer electrons and is based on the recent development within the Murphy group of a novel organic molecule, called Super-S.E.T. reagent 1, that allows the reduction of unactivated aryl and alkyl iodides. My study investigates the scope of donor 1 as a reducing agent and extends the study to a more powerful donor 2.
