Described in this thesis is work based on silica and palladium catalysis which focusses on the formation of amide-containing compounds. Efforts were made towards expanding the substrate scope of direct amide bond formation reactions catalysed by an activated K60 silica catalyst. Two of the resulting amides were then investigated as substrates in single and oxidative C–H functionalisation reactions to form phenanthridin-6(5H)-ones.
