Development and characterisation of an A-site deficient perovskite as alternative anode material for solid oxide fuel cells
(University of St Andrews, 2013-06-26) - Thesis
The research presented in this thesis is a collection of many different, yet connected, parts that stemmed from the development of a new alternative material intended to be utilised as anode material in solid oxide fuel ...
Isothiourea-mediated synthesis of functionalised heterocycles
(University of St Andrews, 2016-09-26) - Thesis
The research outlined in this thesis describes methodologies for the synthesis of functionalised heterocycles through the use of C1-ammonium enolate catalysis utilising isothiourea organocatalysts. Chapter 2: Initial ...
Chiral iridium(III) and ruthenium(II) complexes as phosphorescent scaffolds for heterometallic supramolecular self-assembly
(University of St Andrews, 2018-06-27) - Thesis
This thesis explores the design, synthesis and optoelectronic properties of supramolecular photoactive materials based on chiral iridium(III) and ruthenium(II) metalloligands. Our design strategies aim to create a high ...
Synthesis and photophysical properties of luminescent supramolecular systems
(University of St Andrews, 2018-06) - Thesis
Supramolecular chemistry has been developed in decades, and a large number of well-defined structures have been built by the utilizing of hydrogen bonds, coordination bonds and etc. However, the research on their photophysical ...
Conversion of renewable feedstocks into polymer precursors and pharmaceutical drugs
(University of St Andrews, 2018-12-06) - Thesis
Fossils fuels are highly demanded in everyday life domestically or industrially. Fossil fuels are finite resources and they are rapidly depleting, as such alternative renewable feedstocks are sought to replace fossil fuels. ...
The effect of changing crystal structures on the magnetic and superconducting properties of the iron based superconductors and their parent compounds
(University of St Andrews, 2018-09) - Thesis
Superconductivity in high temperature superconducting materials arises due to the constituent electrons becoming strongly correlated. In particular, in the Iron based family of superconductors, antiferromagnetic fluctuations ...
