  • Applications of isothiourea generated ammonium enolates in asymmetric synthesis 

    Smith, Siobhan Rose (University of St Andrews, 2014) - Thesis
    This thesis describes expansion of the ability of isothioureas to act as organocatalysts in formal [2+2]-, [3+2]- and [4+2]-cycloadditions between carboxylic acids and various acceptors via Type I ammonium enolate ...
  • Characterisation of materials for organic photovoltaics 

    Thomsen, Elizabeth Alice (University of St Andrews, 2008-06) - Thesis
    Organic solar cells offer the possibility for lightweight, flexible, and inexpensive photovoltaic devices. This thesis studies the physics of a wide range of materials designed for use in organic solar cells. The materials ...
  • Characterisation of organic materials for photovoltaic devices 

    Lewis, Andrew J. (University of St Andrews, 2006-09-20) - Thesis
    This thesis presents an investigation into a wide range of potential materials for organic photovoltaic (PV) devices. A variety of optical techniques are used to define physical parameters for each material such as the ...
  • Designing hypercyclic replicating networks 

    Wood, Evan A. (University of St Andrews, 2007-11-30) - Thesis
    In the last 20 years there has been a number of synthetic and natural product based molecular replicators published in the literature. The majority of these systems have focused on the minimal model with only a few examples ...
  • The labile nature of the halogen atom in organic compounds 

    Traill, David (University of St Andrews, 1925-10) - Thesis
