Abstract

The work described in this thesis consists of an investigationv into the use of [Pddppe(MeOH)2] [C104]2, AgC104, (C6H5)3CC104 and (CH3)3Si0C103 as catalyst precursors for the reaction of alcohols, particularly methanol, with triphenylsilane. Although the species (C6H5)3SiC104 could not be obtained in a pure form, evidence suggests it plays an important role in the reaction sequences of these precursors leading to the in situ formation of anhydrous perchloric acid. This acid then acts to catalyse the alcoholysis reaction.
