One of the most exciting new areas in main group chemistry over the past 10 years has been Frustrated Lewis Pair (FLP) chemistry. Recent work within the Wass group has focussed on developing a transition-metal based analogue, which was shown to not only activate molecules in analogous fashion to the main group systems, but previously unknown substrates too. Following on from this seminal work, the work in this thesis has sought to expand the area by investigating a number of variations on the original complex.
