  • X-ray studies of zeolites and MOFs 

    Morris, Samuel Alexander (University of St Andrews, 2016-11-30) - Thesis
    This thesis is largely a study of the ADOR process (assembly-disassembly-organisation-reassembly) when applied to zeolite UTL. The final chapter of this thesis deals with the adsorption of the medical gases NO and CO onto ...
  • Synthesis and characterisation of transition metal fluorides 

    Black, Cameron (University of St Andrews, 2015-11) - Thesis
    This thesis reports exploratory studies on the synthesis of new vanadium and copper-containing compounds, with a particular emphasis on preparing new magnetically-active materials with S = ½ spin configurations. Eighteen ...
  • Investigating sensitivity improvement methods for quadrupolar nuclei in solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance 

    Colaux, Henri (University of St Andrews, 2016-11-30) - Thesis
    The study of quadrupolar nuclei using NMR spectroscopy in the solid state significantly increased in popularity from the end of the 20th century, with the introduction of specific methods to acquire spectra free from the ...
  • Dynamic molecular control of nanoparticle building block assembly 

    Borsley, Stefan (University of St Andrews, 2016-06) - Thesis
    Nanoparticles have generated much excitement as a result of their often unique properties, inherently dependent on nanoparticle material, shape and size. Virtually all conceivable nanoparticle applications will require ...
  • X-ray crystallographic studies of sulfur/selenium heteroatom compounds 

    Du, Junyi (University of St Andrews, 2016-06-22) - Thesis
    The major aim of research reported on this thesis uses X-ray crystallography to investigate the structural features of a series of pentafluorosulfuranyl (SF₅) containing aromatic compounds, chalcogen amides, 2,4-diaryl-1 ...
