    Megginson, Rory (University of St Andrews, 2016) - Thesis
    In this study, the adsorption of 2-butanol and furfural was investigated on Au (111), Cu (111) and Cu/Au (111) surfaces. It was hoped that by studying how these species adsorbed on these surfaces , insight would be provided ...

    Kasten, Kevin (University of St Andrews, 2017) - Thesis
    This thesis describes the use of chiral nitrogen-based Lewis base catalysts in transformations such as cycloadditions and rearrangements. Cinchona alkaloids were employed as catalysts within a formal [4+2]-cycloaddition ...

    Caldwell, John Bell (University of St Andrews, 1948-04) - Thesis
    This thesis is largely concerned with the phenomenon of photo-conduction in micro-crystalline layers of lead sulphide, antimony sulphide and thallium sulphide. All the materials studied are semi-conductors, either excess ...
