  • Some structural and photochemical studies in triterpenoids

    Zhu, Julie Hehui (The University of Waikato, 2000)
    This thesis describes the photochemical behaviour of 22-hydroxyhopan-7-one, hop-22(29)-en-7-one, 22-hydroxyhopan-15-one, hop-21-en-15-one, hop-22(29)-en-15-one, hopan-15-one and 21α-H-hopan-15-one in different solvents, ...
  • Novel compounds for immunoassay of small biomolecules

    Mitchell, John Stanton (The University of Waikato, 2005)
    A series of progesterone-4-ovalbumin conjugates with different length intermediate linkers were applied as coating antigens in an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) format to determine antibody-binding performance ...
  • Reactions of cyclomanganated compounds

    Mace, Wade (The University of Waikato, 2003)
    This thesis describes novel reactions of cyclomanganated compounds of the general form shown below. The ligand is bonded by a metal-carbon σ-bond, with X acting as a donor atom to form the chelate ring. The organic ligands ...
  • The synthesis and reactivity of B-aryl {i.e. Beta -aryl} lignin model quinone methides

    Ede, Richard Michael (The University of Waikato, 1987)
    A range of l,2-diarylpropane-1,3-diols and 2,3-dihydro-2-aryl-7- methoxy-benzofurans were synthesised as model compounds for the B-5 (phenylcoumaran) structural unit found in wood lignin. The syntheses were performed ...
  • pH-sensitive Anticancer Model Prodrug: Amide of Kemp's Acid

    Brooks, Robert Turongo (The University of Waikato, 2009)
    Solid tumours are characterised by lower extracellular pH (as low as 5.8 pH) compared to normal healthy cellular pH (actively regulated at pH 7.3). This difference may be exploited with an acid-sensitive anti-tumour prodrug ...
