Valorisation des Dérivés Carboniques par hydrogénation : un challenge vers le développement de procédés éco-compatibles by Sebastien Coufourier( )

2 editions published in 2018 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The use of carbon dioxide as a source of carbon C1 to produce chemical platforms or as a fuel source constitute an alternative to petrochemicals and could allow its recycling. Currently, the main described processes for the recycling and the valorization of CO2 are using reducing agents in stoichiometric amounts (which generates waste) or noble metals (limited availability, toxicity and high costs). In this environmental and economical race, one of the challenges of modern chemistry is the preparation of new organometallic iron complexes and their use in catalysis. Based on our expertise in the field of synthesis, catalysis and development of organometallic complexes, this work proposes to develop new fast, efficient, selective and eco-compatible methodologies for the reduction of carbon dioxide and carbonates by hydrogenation with bifunctional iron complexes

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The research in this thesis describes the exploration of the Lewis-acid Lewis-base interactions between organophopshine and organoborane compounds. We focused our attention on four types of interactions going from frustrating to stong P-B bonds. Our understanding of these interactions is based on detailed kinetics and computational calculations, allowing us to find a new reactivity of these species. In a first part, we studied the metal-free hydrogenation of unsaturated compounds using Frustrated Lewis Pairs (FLPs). Based on the measurement of the nucleophilicity and the Lewis basicity parameters of sterically hindered phosphines, we were able to explain reasons of the failure of P/B FLPs to catalyse the hydrogenation of Michael acceptors under H2. In the second chapter, we employed the Mayr's linear-free energy relationship to measure the hydricity of various phosphine borane complexes (PBs) and compare their reactivity to commons hydride donors. Based on these kinetic parameters, we next turned our attention to investigate the effect of a strong Lewis acid, (B(C6F5)3), to prevent the expected intramolecular borylation of PBs to take place. By combining kinetic and computational investigations, we have been able to understand factors controlling this reaction. In the last chapter, we reported on the regioselective organocatalytic Markovnikov hydrophosphination of aryl alkenes. Importantly, we highlighted that the reversible formation of a phosphine-Lewis acid complex is in the core of the catalytic process. Mechanistic investigations support the formation of a carbocation in the catalytic cycle
Etude de la formation de radicaux phosphorés et leurs applications en synthèse organique by William Lecroq( )

2 editions published in 2019 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les travaux présentés dans ce manuscrit de thèse traitent de l'étude et de l'utilisation des radicaux phosphorés en synthèse organique.Le développement d'une méthode de synthèse des dérivés arylphosphonates photo induite associant simplement les sels de diaryliodonium en présence de phosphite dans l'acétonitrile a été discuté. Des études mécanistiques nous ont permis de proposer un mecanisme de cette méthode photo induite, passant par un complexe à transfert de charge.La réactivité des radicaux phosphoranyle a été utilisée pour l'étude de la désoxygénation des amines N-oxyde, utilisant un organocatalyseur phosphoré capable d'être réduit par le phénylsilane. Des études théoriques ont permis de montrer que l'espèce photo active est la pyridine N-oxyde, évolue pour générer un intermédiaire oxaziridine. L'utilisation du phénylsilane pour la réduction des amines tertiaires N-oxyde à température ambiante et sans irradiation lumineuse a été envisagée, nous permettant de développer une méthode de désoxygénation sélective de dérivés hétérocycles-amines tertiaires N,N-dioxyde
Acides boriniques et hydrosilanes : de la spécificité vers la réactivité by Aurelien Chardon( )

2 editions published in 2017 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Boron based Lewis acid such as borane, boronic and borinic acids, has recently emerged as a strong alternative to transition metal catalysts for catalysis. During Tharwat Mody El Dine thesis, a range of original borinic acids have been synthetized. These catalysts have been used to investigate catalytic peptides synthesis and amines formylation. This thesis work with aimed the association between borinic acids and hydrosilanes for organic synthesis. In the first part a borinic acid catalyzed amides reductions have been developed, our methodology work in mild conditions and displayed high chemoselectivities. In a second chapter, we will study the activity of borinic acids for the reduction of phosphine oxides, sulfoxides and amine N-oxide. After a study on the formation of previously observed amine-borane, a borinic acid mediated ketones, aldehydes and imines hydrosilylation have been demonstrated in the third chapter. In the fourth chapter a cooperative borinic acid-hydrosilane mediated amide bond formation has been developed, the mild conditions and the absence of racemization appear as the keys elements of this methodology. Finally, RMN and DFT instruments have been used to understand the relationship between structure and reactivity of borinic acids.All this study confirms the potential of borinic acids as efficient metal-free catalysts in many organic transformations.Mots clés : catalyse, acide borinique, hydrosilane, réduction, amides
Développement de nouveaux organocatalyseurs pour la synthèse de polyuréthanes by Jérôme Alsarraf( )

1 edition published in 2012 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Polyurethanes (PU) constitute an important market, estimated around 10 wt% of the current synthetic polymer production. They are usually prepared by the most straightforward route involving the addition of polyols to polyisocyanates in the presence of a catalyst. Tin based organometallic complexes are the most active catalysts currently in use, but environmental concerns should lead in not too distant a future to a ban of these reagents. In the context of a multidisciplinary project, we focused our efforts on the design of environmentally more acceptable organocatalysts that could advantageously replace metal-based catalysts. A screening of organocatalysts was therefore carried out, from which bicyclic guanidines such as 7-methyl-1,5,7-triazabicyclo[4,4,0]dec-5-ene (MTBD) emerged as the most efficient. New analogues of MTBD were prepared and successfully used as catalysts for the synthesis of PU. Mechanistic studies were also performed. The catalytic behaviour of structurally similar compound such as MTBD, TBD, DBU or DBN was rationalised. The nucleophilic reaction between MTBD and isocyanates was highlighted and original compounds in which two equivalents of isocyanate are incorporated onto the guanidine scaffold were isolated. These novel heterocycles exhibit appealing thermally-triggered delayed-action catalytic properties for the synthesis of PU
Une approche diagonale pour la transformation catalytique du dioxyde de carbone by Christophe Gomes( )

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Emissions of carbon dioxide are growing with the massive utilization of hydrocarbons for the production of energy and chemicals, resulting in a threatening global warming. The development of a more sustainable economy is urging to reduce the fingerprint of our current way of life. In this perspective, the organic chemistry industry will face important challenges in the next decades to replace hydrocarbons as a feedstock and use carbon-free energy sources. To tackle this challenge, new catalytic processes have been designed to convert CO2 to high energy and value-added chemicals (formamides, N-heterocycles and methanol), using a novel diagonal approach. The energy efficiency of the new transformations is ensured by the utilization of mild reductants such as hydrosilanes and hydroboranes. Importantly the reactions are promoted by organic catalysts, which circumvent the problems of cost, abundance and toxicity usually encountered with metal complexes. Based on theoretical and experimental studies, the understanding of the mechanisms involved in these reactions allowed the rational optimization of the catalysts as well as the reaction conditions, in order to match the requirements of sustainable chemistry
Nouvelles réactions de couplages des organosilanes pour la synthèse d'esters à partir du CO₂ et de sulfones à partir du SO₂ by Joëlle Char( )

1 edition published in 2017 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Les couplages croisés sont des réactions très étudiées et ont même fait l'objet d'un prix Nobel. Ces réactions consistent à coupler une espèce organométallique nucléophile avec une espèce électrophile et sont la meilleure façon de former une nouvelle liaison peu ou pas polarisée telle qu'une liaison C-C ou C-S. Cependant, leur mise en place emploie souvent des nucléophiles forts limitant ainsi leur sélectivité et leur tolérance. D'abord, les organosilanes sont des nucléophiles attrayants grâce à leur abondance, leur sélectivité, leur stabilité, leur tolérance aux groupements fonctionnels, leur faible toxicité, leur manipulation facile et leur faible coût. Toutefois, leur faible nucléophilie peut représenter un défi à surmonter lors de leur utilisation. Ensuite, pour une économie d'atome maximale, le dioxyde de carbone (CO₂) représente la meilleure source de carbone et de fonction ester ; et le dioxyde de soufre (SO₂), la meilleure source de soufre et de fonction sulfone. Dans ce manuscrit sont relatées plusieurs nouvelles réactions de couplage des organosilanes pour la synthèse directe d'esters à partir du CO₂ et de sulfones à partir du SO₂. Une étude théorique et expérimentale a été réalisée pour permettre la mise en place de la réaction de couplage du CO₂ avec un arylsilane et un halogénure d'alcane, catalysée par un complexe de cuivre(I). Les caractères plus nucléophile et plus électrophile du SO₂ ont été exploités pour son couplage, sans catalyseur, avec des arylsilanes et des halogénures d'alcanes et pour son couplage, pallado-catalysé, avec des allylsilanes et des halogénures d'aryles, communément appelé le couplage de Hiyama sulfonylant
Réactions d'interconversion catalytiques entre composés C1 : CO2, CO, acide formique, méthanol, méthane et dérivés by Arnaud Imberdis( )

Our society has grown considerably thanks to the use of fossil resources. The use of these resources, in the field of energy or the chemical industry, leads to a disruption of the natural carbon cycle caused by the accumulation of an anthropogenic CO2 in the atmosphere. To overcome this issue, one of the conceivable solutions is to gradually abandon fossil hydrocarbons in favor of renewable carbon resources such as CO₂ for the storage of renewable energies and / or as a source of chemical products. The first building blocks obtained from CO2 are one carbon atom containing molecules, known as C1 compounds. It includes methane (CH4), carbon monoxide (CO), methanol (CH3OH), formic acid (HCOOH). These reactions are limited by their practicality, their yield or by their selectivity. Therefore, they are not an ideal solution to the initial problem. In this context, this doctoral work has explored alternative ways of interconverting these compounds to offer CO2 recovery pathways. In the first place, the use of HCOOH was proposed as a CO vector. This topic is born of the growing interest for the organic chemistry sector to obtain liquid or solid sources of CO. In a second step, a new disproportionation strategy was developed to access CH3OH from HCOOH derivatives, the silicon formates. These reagents allow to avoid the thermodynamic limitation related to the disproportionation of HCOOH. The control of the silylated by-products recycling enabled the success of this transformation. A new CH4 production route was also developed from CH3OH using HCOOH as a reducing agent. Finally, the knowledge acquired on CO2 activation and reactivity enabled a transposition by analogy to other iso-electronic molecules, including carbodiimides in order to form the isoureas under organocatalytic conditions
Recyclage du CO2 : Une alternative à la pétrochimie pour la synthèse de molécules azotées by Enguerrand Blondiaux( )

1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Les ressources carbonées fossiles (pétrole, charbon, gaz) couvrent 85 % des besoins énergétiques mondiaux et servent de matières premières pour 95 % des consommables chimiques organiques (plastiques, engrais, pesticides...). L'amenuisement des ressources pétrolières et l'accumulation du CO2 résultant de leur utilisation posent donc un problème écologique, énergétique et de disponibilité en matières premières pour l'industrie chimique. Dans ce contexte, il convient de proposer de nouvelles voies de synthèse de consommables chimiques, de manière à construire une industrie durable basée sur l'utilisation de ressources carbonées renouvelables. Contourner la pétrochimie et valoriser au maximum son déchet carboné, le CO2, pour construire des édifices moléculaires sans vocation énergétique (polymères, engrais, textiles synthétiques...) représente donc un enjeu scientifique de premier plan. Dans cet optique, de nouveaux procédés de synthèse de molécules azotées ont été mis au point à partir de CO2 comme source de carbone, d'amines comme source d'azote et de réducteurs doux de type hydrosilanes et hydroboranes comme source d'hydrogène. Ces procédés sont accélérés par l'utilisation de catalyseurs sans métaux et permettent de produire des formamides, des formamidines, des aminals et des méthylamines, qui constituent des molécules de bases de l'industrie chimique
Transformations réductrices du CO2 pour la formation de liaisons C-N et C-C by Xavier Frogneux( )

1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Dans le monde actuel, le dioxyde de carbone (CO2) est le déchet majoritaire issu de l'utilisation des ressources fossiles mais il est encore peu utilisé dans les applications à grande échelle. Afin de tirer parti de son abondance, le développement de nouvelles transformations chimiques du CO2 pour accéder à des produits de chimie fine connait un intérêt croissant au sein de la communauté scientifique. Tout particulièrement, la formation de liaison(s) C-N à partir du CO2 et d'un substrat azotés permet d'accéder à des produits à hautes valeurs énergétiques et commerciales. Un second type de transformation désirable est la formation de liaison C-C à partir du CO2 afin de synthétiser des dérivés d'acides carboxyliques comme des esters. L'utilisation d'hydrosilanes, réducteurs doux, permet de travailler sous 1 bar de CO2 avec des catalyseurs à base de métaux peu coûteux et abondants tels que le fer et le zinc ou bien avec des organocatalyseurs. Les synthèses de formamides, de méthylamines ou d'aminals à partir du CO2 ont ainsi été développées par hydrosilylation. Enfin, la carboxylation des carbosilanes à partir du CO2 a été développée pour la première fois avec un catalyseur à base de cuivre. Dans le cas des 2-pyridylsilanes, l'utilisation de sels de fluorures pentavalents permet d'activer le substrat efficacement sans catalyseur
Mimer la chimie des hydrosilanes et hydroboranes par l'activation catalytique de dérivés silylés et borés de l'acide formique by Timothé Godou( )

1 edition published in 2019 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Global energy needs are mostly covered by the use of fossil fuels such as oil, coal or gas. The use of these fossil resources in the field of energy or the chemical industry causes a high accumulation of CO2 in the atmosphere and causes climatic disturbances. In addition to posing a major ecological problem, these fossil resources are not renewable and will pose a problem of availability in the long term. To overcome these difficulties, one possible solution is to limit or even stop the use of fossil resources in favor of renewable carbon sources such as CO2 or biomass. These resources could be used as a source of chemicals and / or storage of intermittent energies. These uses require the conversion of oxygenates with C=O (such as CO2) and C-O (such as biomass) and require energy input into reduction reactions. Few reducers are compatible with this use which requires the use of compounds both renewable and having a redox potential adapted to the reduction of C-O bonds. These are essentially dihydrogen and formic acid. In this context, this doctoral work aims to define and meet the specifications of a renewable reducer. In the first place, the use of silyl formates is explored, through reactions mimicking the behavior of hydrosilanes. This strategy is used in dehydrogenating coupling reactions and for the reduction of ketones by transfer hydrosilylation. Finally, this concept is transposed to transfer hydroboration with the use of boryl mono formate compounds and a catalyst involving a participative ligand. The boryl and silyl formates thus appear as attractive renewable reducers, which combine a source of renewable hydride (formic acid) with an oxophilic element of the main group whose stereo-electronic properties are easily adjustable
Synthèse de nouveaux ligands tripodes et de leurs complexes de coordination pour l'activation de petites molécules by Alicia Aloisi( )

1 edition published in 2018 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

L'utilisation massive de ressources fossiles carbonées pour des applications énergétiques est aujourd'hui pointée du doigt comme responsable du changement climatique. Le CO₂ émis lors de la combustion de ces ressources augmente l'effet de serre, induisant ainsi un réchauffement de la planète. Afin d'atténuer ce changement climatique, l'utilisation des énergies renouvelables est de plus en plus favorisée et le stockage de cette énergie sous forme d'hydrogène semble prometteur pour pallier à l'intermittence saisonnière de ces ressources. Une voie de stockage de l'hydrogène consiste à le faire réagir avec du CO₂ afin d'obtenir des carburants liquides telles que l'acide formique et le méthanol. Ces liquides peuvent alors être transportés facilement et lorsque l'énergie vient à manquer l'hydrogène peut être régénéré par déshydrogénation de ces molécules grâce à des catalyseurs. Dans cette thèse nous avons développé des complexes organométalliques en vue d'activer CO₂ et H₂, ce qui nous a permis d'acquérir un savoir fondamental. Le ligand triphos étant très connu pour coordiner des complexes qui catalysent ces réactions d'hydrogénation et de déshydrogénation, nous nous sommes d'abord concentrés sur le développement de ligands similaires. Nous avons synthétisé de nouveaux complexes de Fe (II), Co (II) et Cu (I) avec ces ligands. Ceux-ci se sont révélés actifs en hydroboration du CO₂. Un complexe de ruthénium a été greffé sur silice par son ligand, afin de pouvoir être recyclé lors des catalyses. Dans une deuxième partie, nous avons synthétisé un nouveau ligand aux des propriétés participatives potentielles. Un complexe de cuivre(I) coordiné par ce ligand a permis d'activer H₂ grâce à une participation métal-ligand.Enfin, un complexe de cobalt(I) coordiné par ce ligand est le premier composé à base de cobalt capable de déshydrogéner l'acide formique

Création de liaisons C-C et C-N par transformation catalytique du CO et du CO₂ by Tawfiq Nasr Allah( )

1 edition published in 2018 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Hormis la préparation de l'acide salicylique et de l'urée, peu de tentatives ont été réalisées jusqu'à présent pour promouvoir la formation de liaisons C-C et C-N à partir du CO₂. Cette thèse présente de nouveaux procédés catalytiques permettant la formation de molécules organiques azotées grâce à la création de liaisons C-N et C-C par transformation catalytique du CO et du CO₂. Les cibles retenues sont les amides ainsi que les alkylamines qui sont essentiels en chimie organique fine et sont souvent d'origine pétrosourcés. Dans un premier temps, la synthèse d'amide par carbonylation formelle de la liaison C-N d'amine sera étudiée grâce à des catalyseurs à base de métaux carbonyles. Dans un second temps, des procédés d'homologation des amines seront décrits grâce à l'utilisation de catalyseurs métalliques. La première stratégie impliquera l'utilisation de catalyseur de cobalt, en présence de CO et de silanes et permettra l'homologation sélective des liaisons N-méthyle en N-éthyle sous de faible pression de CO (P = 8 bar) et jusqu'au N-pentyle sous de fortes pressions. Dans un second temps, l'utilisation d'un catalyseur de ruthénium en présence d'un gaz de synthèse (CO/H₂) nous permettra de démontrer la possibilité de l'homologation de la diphénylamine. Enfin, la compréhension de ce système nous permettra de transposer cette réaction à l'utilisation du CO₂ comme substitut du CO
Reaction mechanisms of CO₂ activation and catalytic reduction by Niklas von Wolff( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The use of CO₂ as a C1 chemical feedstock for the fine chemical industry is interesting both economically and ecologically, as CO₂ is non-toxic, abundant and cheap. Nevertheless, transformations of CO₂ into value-added products is hampered by its high thermodynamic stability and its inertness toward reduction. In order to design new catalysts able to overcome this kinetic challenge, a profound understanding of the reaction mechanisms at play in CO₂ reduction is needed. Using novel N/Si+ frustrated Lewis pairs (FLPs), the influence of CO₂ adducts and different hydroborane reducing agents on the reaction mechanism in the catalytic hydroboration of CO₂ were investigated, both by DFT calculations and experiments. In a second step, the reaction mechanism of a novel reaction for the creation of C-C bonds from CO₂ and pyridylsilanes (C₅H₄N-SiMe₃) was analyzed by DFT calculations. It was shown that CO₂ plays a double role in this transformation, acting both as a catalyst and a C1-building block. The fine understanding of this transformation then led to the development of a novel approach for the synthesis of sulfones and sulfonamides. Starting from SO₂ and aromatic silanes/amine silanes, these products were obtained in a single step under metal-free conditions. Noteworthy, sulfones and sulfonamides are common motifs in organic chemistry and found in a variety of highly important drugs. Finally, this concept was extended to aromatic halides as coupling partners, and it was thus shown for the first time that a sulfonylative Hiyama reaction is a possible approach to the synthesis of sulfones
Chemistry of CO₂ for the synthesis of radio-labelled compounds by Gianluca Destro( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Radioisotope labeling is a relevant topic both from a fundament research perspective and for health applications in academy and pharmaceutical and agrochemical industries. In this context, carbon-14 plays a basic role in drug development and ADME and toxicological studies. Traditional synthesis with radiocarbon (¹⁴C), based on lengthy and multistep approaches, have hampered the sustainable of the strategy. The aim of this thesis is to develop novel labeling techniques by isotope exchange. At first, our efforts were focused on the developement of a copper catalyzed dynamic carbon isotope exchange (CIE) using ¹³CO₂ and ¹⁴CO₂, a fundamental and readily available source of radiocarbon on (hetero)aromatic carboxylic acids. The concept of CIE was further extent to another relevant drug scaffolds such as phenyl acetic acids. Hence, it was described a transition metal-free approach able to exchange ¹³CO₂, le ¹⁴CO₂ and ¹¹CO₂, to the best of our knowledge this would be the first example. At last, another CIE with a different primary radiocarbon source such as cyanyde was envisioned. CIE technology expands the concept of late-stage carbon radiolabeling, with substrates bearing carboxylic acid and nitrile moieties, reducing the synthetic costs and limiting the generation of radioactive waste. This new process is still at its infancy and more work need to be done
Bio-inspired heterogeneous catalysts for carbon dioxide reduction by Dilan Karapinar( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Over the past decades, in the context of global warming the increase in usage of fossil fuels urges to develop new sources of clean and sustainable energy. One of the longitudinal method of energy storage and conversion is the reduction of CO2 into high-value added products. CO2 valorization via electrochemical reduction at electrode is drawing attention due to its easy adaptation and utilization with different type of renewable energy. The main research aim into the electrochemical reduction of CO2 is the design of electrocatalyst that can reduce CO2 to thermodynamically stable products both efficiently and selectively by taking inspiration from keystone of natural process. Moreover, for long term durability, we focus on developing heterogeneous electrocatalyst. Recently, materials containing of a metal coordinated to a porphyrin like ring places in carbon framework (M-N-C), come into prominence for carbon dioxide reduction reaction (CO2RR) because of their low cost, tunable surface areas, and electrocatalytic activity. However there are still remained challenges approaching to the application towards industrial level such as low current density, high overpotenyial.The first chapter will address some of these challenges by coupling the metal- and nitrogen- doped porous carbon-based catalysts on nanostructured carbon supports. Then, we investigate the effect of nanostructured carbon supports on activity and selectivity for electrochemical CO2 reduction. In the second chapter, due to the high market demand of multicarbon products from CO2 electroreduction, the research focused on to new copper-based catalyst to have efficient and selective multicarbon product. In this regard, we introduced the synthesis, structural and morphological characterization (in-situ and ex-situ) of a copper-nitrogen-doped carbon material (Cu-N-C). The material is presenting well-defined isolated CuN4 sites integrated in a carbon matrix and demonstrating selective ethanol formation from CO2 electroreduction with Faradaic yield of up to 55% (0.1 M CsHCO3 , -1.2V vs. RHE, gas-phase recycling experiment).Lastly, in order to increase surface active sites, new analogous M-N-C material was studied. In this chapter, the synthesis, characterization and CO2RR activity of novel Cu based material- copper polyphthalocyanine on multi-walled carbon nanotube (CNT) ([email protected])- was introduced. Active and selective CO2 reduction to CO with long term stability were disclosed
Metal-Free and Alkali-Metal-Catalyzed Synthesis of Isoureas from Alcohols and Carbodiimides( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: The first addition of alcohols to carbodiimides catalyzed by transition-metal-free compounds employs 1, 5, 7-triazabicyclo[4.4.0]dec-5-ene (TBD) and its alkali metal salts. Isoureas are obtained in short reaction times and high yields when TBDK is used as the catalyst. Control of the coordination sphere of potassium with exogenous chelating ligands, in combination with mechanistic DFT calculations, demonstrated the role and positive influence of the alkali-metal cation on the kinetics
