A single molecule spectroscopy approach towards understanding the structure of catalytically active sites (2023-06-14) - ThesisThe work presented in this thesis has been performed with the aim of increasing our understanding of relationships between the structure of an adsorption site and the extent of adsorbate activation, a key step in catalytic ...
Evaluation of two- and three-coordinate copper(I) NHC complexes as photocatalysts (2023-06-14) - ThesisThis thesis explores the design, synthesis, optoelectronic properties, and photocatalytic testing of copper(I) complexes with a two- or three-coordinate geometry bearing N-heterocyclic carbene ligands. Our design strategies ...
A study of copper and gold systems for the hydrogen-free hydrogenation of furfural to furfuryl alcohol (2022-11-18) - ThesisThe production of a new catalysts for the production of furfuryl alcohol from furfural is a topic of interest as it would alleviate the need for the use of a toxic copper chromate catalyst. A new coupled AuCu catalyst ...
