    Eliášová, P.; Opanasenko, M.; Wheatley, Paul Stewart; Shamzhy, M.; Mazur, M.; Nachtigall, P.; Roth, W.J.; Morris, Russell Edward; Čejka, J. (2015-10-21) - Journal article
    A novel methodology, called ADOR (assembly-disassembly-organisation-reassembly), for the synthesis of zeolites is reviewed here in detail. The ADOR mechanism stems from the fact that certain chemical weakness against a ...
  • Adsorption materials and processes for carbon capture from gas-fired power plants : AMPGas 

    Gibson, J. A. Arran; Mangano, Enzo; Shiko, Elenica; Greenaway, Alex; Gromov, Andrei V.; Lozinska, Magdalena M.; Friedrich, Daniel; Campbell, Eleanor E. B.; Wright, Paul A.; Brandani, Stefano (2016-04-06) - Journal article
    The key challenge in postcombustion capture from gas-fired power plants is related to the low CO2 concentration in the flue gas (4–8% by volume). This means that conventional amine processes will result in a relatively ...
  • Adsorption of a dihydro-TTF derivative on Au(111) via a thiolate bonding complex to gold adatoms

    Cheng, Lanxia (University of St Andrews, 2010-11-19) - Thesis
    The adsorption of biologically active molecules, such as the DNA bases, amino acids, on solid surfaces has been the subject of a number of experimental and theoretical studies in the past years. The understanding of the ...
  • Adult dental anxiety : recent assessment approaches and psychological management in a dental practice setting 

    Humphris, Gerald Michael; Spyt, James; Herbison, Alice; Kelsey, Tom (2016-05) - Journal article
    Dental Anxiety of patients is a common feature of the everyday experience of dental practice. This article advocates the use of regular assessment of this psychological construct to assist in patient management. Various ...
  • Adult protection in Scotland in 1857 and in 2015 : what have we learned? 

    Campbell, Martin (2016-04-01) - Journal article
    Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to compare recent developments in adult protection legislation, policy and practice in Scotland in 2015 with the first attempts at adult protection of adults at risk of harm, in 1857-62, ...
  • Advanced application of flexible metamaterials at visible frequencies 

    Kirkpatrick, B.C.; Reader-Harris, P.; Shen, Y.; Wu, J.; Di Falco, A. (SPIE, 2015-02-27) - Conference item
    Flexible metamaterials (FMMs) at optical frequencies can conform to a wide range of target geometries whilst allowing their optical properties to be tuned post-fabrication. Here we discuss this potential by presenting our ...
  • Advanced methods for enhanced sensing in biomedical Raman spectroscopy 

    Balagopal, Bavishna (University of St Andrews, 2014-06-25) - Thesis
    Raman spectroscopy is a powerful tool in the field of biomedicine for disease diagnosis owing to its potential to provide the molecular fingerprint of biological samples. However due to the inherent weak nature of the ...
  • Advanced optical techniques to study biomolecular aggregation processes 

    Quinn, Steven D. (University of St Andrews, 2014-06-25) - Thesis
    Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is characterised by a series of biomolecular aggregation events, which include the formation of neurotoxic protein structures composed of the β-amyloid (Aβ) peptide. In this thesis, fluorescence ...
