    • Investigations in dienamine chemistry. 

      Simpson, Richard. (1991)
      Reaction of the pyrrolidine dienamines of ~1,8a-2-octalones with methyl vinyl ketone is complex. In methanol as solvent, the reaction occurs primarily with the linear dienamine isomer and results in annulation of the ...
    • Palladium catalysed oxidation of a-olefins to ketones. 

      Khuzwayo, Bonakele G. (1997)
      The aim of this research project was to investigate the oxidation reactions of olefins to ketones. Initial studies revolved around the oxidation reactions of terminal olefins to symmetrical dialkyl ketones. The inability ...
