(University of St Andrews, 2017-12) - ThesisSolubility prediction usually refers to prediction of the intrinsic aqueous solubility, which is the concentration of an unionised molecule in a saturated aqueous solution at thermodynamic equilibrium at a given temperature. ...
The identification and down selection of suitable cathode materials for use in next generation thermal batteries (University of St Andrews, 2017-12-07) - ThesisIn this work new novel cathode materials such as transition-metal sulfides, chlorides or fluorides were investigated and studied for their use in lithium ion thermal batteries. All cathodes were synthesized by a solid state ...
(University of St Andrews, 2014) - ThesisThis 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 ...
