    • Asymmetric hydrogenation of enamide esters in aqueous media. 

      Emory, Jessica. (Wheaton College; Norton, Mass., 2011-11-23)
      The purpose of this research was to investigate the feasibility of using aqueous media for the synthesis of amino acid precursors through asymmetric hydrogenation reactions. Acetyl-protected enamide esters with a variety ...
    • Asymmetric hydrogenation of tyrosine analogues in water. 

      Moreira, Amy. (Wheaton College (Norton, Mass.), 2013-09-13)
      "The purpose of this study was to investigate the feasibility of using water for the synthesis of tyrosine analogues through asymmetric hydrogenation reactions. A variety of α-enamide substrates, varying in R groups and ...
    • Synthesis of hydroxy acids using asymmetric hydrogenation in water. 

      Dunn, Zachary. (Wheaton College (Norton, Mass.), 2013-09-17)
      The purpose of this study was to develop a green chemistry synthesis of hydroxy acids from the starting material glyoxylic acid. Two reactions that were the primary focus of this study. The first was the Wittig-Horner ...
