Iridium-PHOX-mediated alkene hydrogenation: Isomerisation influences the stereochemical outcome
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2014-05-27)
Recent experimental studies of iridium-phosphinooxazoline-mediated alkene hydrogenation indicated two dihydride species as resting states, with the minor isomer assumed to give rise to the major product enantiomer [Gruber and Pfaltz, Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2014, 53, 1896]. B3LYP-D2 calculations confirm the two dihydride intermediates as resting states but show that these species do not give rise to ...

An evaluation of International Reference Ionosphere electron density in the polar cap and cusp using EISCAT Svalbard radar measurements
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-09-13)
Incoherent scatter radar measurements are an important source for studies of ionospheric plasma parameters. In this paper the EISCAT Svalbard radar (ESR) long-term database is used to evaluate the International Reference Ionosphere (IRI) model. The ESR started operations in 1996, and the accumulated database up to 2012 thus covers 16 years, giving an overview of the ionosphere in the polar cap and ...
Sphero NAV - Robotic Navigation and Control Platform
(Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2014-06-01)
This thesis presents Sphero NAV, a camera based navigation and control platform for the robotic ball Orbotix Sphero. Sphero NAV is a Python library that serves as a base for developing new Sphero applications. The library allows for communication and control of one or multiple Sphero devices using Sphero’s rich API and functionality. Sphero NAV implements a tracker system that uses image based ...
Integrated Monitoring of Mola mola Behaviour in Space and Time
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-08-05)
Over the last decade, ocean sunfish movements have been monitored worldwide using various satellite tracking methods. This study reports the near-real time monitoring of fine-scale (< 10 m) behaviour of sunfish. The study was conducted in southern Portugal in May 2014 and involved satellite tags and underwater and surface robotic vehicles to measure both the movements and the contextual environment ...
Total synthesis of tubastrine and 3-dehydroxy tubastrine by microwave-assisted cross-coupling reactions
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-09-03)
The first syntheses of tubastrine and 3-dehydroxy tubastrine are described. The target compounds were prepared in four consecutive steps from commercially available starting materials. The central scaffold was formed by a microwave-assisted C–N cross-coupling reaction between 1,3-bis(<i>tert</i>-butoxycarbonyl)-guanidine and (<i>E</i>)-((4-(2-iodovinyl)-1,2-phenylene)bis(oxy))bis(<i>tert</i>-butyl ...
Analytical and Case Studies of a Sandwich Structure using Euler-Bernoulli Beam Equation
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-11)
This paper presents analytical and case studies of sandwich structures. In this study, the Euler-Bernoulli beam equation is solved analytically for a four-point bending problem. Appropriate initial and boundary conditions are specified to enclose the problem. In addition, the balance coefficient is calculated and the Rule of Mixtures is applied. The focus of this study is to determine the effective ...
Applicability Extent of 2-D Heat Equation for Numerical Analysis of a Multiphysics Problem
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-01)
This work focuses on thermal problems, solvable using the heat equation. The fundamental question being answered here is: what are the limits of the dimensions that will allow a 3-D thermal problem to be accurately modelled using a 2-D Heat Equation? The presented work solves 2-D and 3-D heat equations using the Finite Difference Method, also known as the Forward-Time Central-Space (FTCS) method, ...
Iron/Brønsted Acid Catalyzed Asymmetric Hydrogenation: Mechanism and Selectivity-Determining Interactions
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-06-03)
Hydrogenation catalysts involving abundant base metals such as cobalt or iron are promising alternatives to precious metal systems. Despite rapid progress in this field, base metal catalysts do not yet achieve the activity and selectivity levels of their precious metal counterparts. Rational improvement of base metal complexes is facilitated by detailed knowledge about their mechanisms and ...
Palladium(0)-Catalyzed Cross-Couplings of 2-Bromophosphinine
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2013-05-21)
A new Negishi-type cross-coupling of 2-bromophosphinine has been developed. The new method expands the scope of palladium-catalyzed couplings to monobromophosphinines, which have been considered as poor substrates so far. Moreover, aryl-, alkenyl-, and alkynylzinc bromides were found to be effective coupling partners.
