Synthesis, adsorption and catalysis of large pore metal phosphonates
(University of St Andrews, 2010-06) - Thesis,
The synthesis and properties of metal phosphonates prepared using piperazine-based bisphosphonic acids have been investigated. The ligands N,N’-piperazinebis(methylenephosphonic acid) (H₄L), and the 2-methyl (H₄L-Me) and ...
Investigation of inorganic porous solids as adsorbents for the separation of carbon dioxide from flue gas
(University of St Andrews, 2013-07-25) - Thesis,
Porous inorganic solids including mesoporous silicas, zeolites and silicoalumnio-phosphates have been investigated as adsorbents for carbon dioxide, particularly in relation to uptake from flue gases at 0.1 bar and ca. 298 ...
Synthesis, characterisation and adsorption properties of metal-organic frameworks and the structural response to functionalisation and temperature
(University of St Andrews, 2012-07) - Thesis,
The synthesis of a scandium aluminium methylphosphonate ScAl₃(CH₃PO₃)₆ isostructural to the aluminium methylphosphonate AlMePO-α and with permanent microporosity is reported here for the first time. Structural characterisation ...
Synthesis of porous metal phosphonate frameworks for applications in gas separation and storage
(University of St Andrews, 2012-05-22) - Thesis,
Porous metal phosphonate framework materials were synthesised by solvothermal reaction of bis(α-aminomethylenephosphonic acid) ligands with divalent and trivalent metal cations. The syntheses and characterisation by NMR ...
The location of active sites in microporous solids
(University of St Andrews, 2014) - Thesis,
The location of heteroatoms within porous materials was examined in chosen zeolite and zeotype materials. For zeolites, the substitution of aluminium (mainly, but also gallium and boron) for silicon was examined in ...
Synthesis and properties of scandium carboxylate metal-organic frameworks
(University of St Andrews, 2015-06-24) - Thesis,
This work investigated the synthesis, characterisation and properties of known and novel scandium carboxylate Metal-organic Frameworks (MOFs). The first part reports the performance of these Sc-MOFs as Lewis acid catalysts. ...
