  • Analysis of Nucleosides and Nucleotides in Milk and Infant Formula

    Gill, Brendon D. (University of Waikato, 2013)
    Nucleotides have been routinely supplemented to infant formulas due to the important roles they play in metabolism and to replicate the higher concentrations typically found in human milk. A method utilising anion exchange ...
  • pH Sensitive Anticancer 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 ...
  • Derivatisation of Polyphenols

    Bridson, James Hadley (The University of Waikato, 2007)
    Polyphenols, such as tannins, offer potential as a bio-derived chemical feedstock. Their present utilisation is limited mainly to leather tanning and wood panel adhesives. However, appropriate derivatisation may alter ...
  • Organomanganese compounds in organic synthesis

    Prasad, Narendra Jai (University of Waikato, 2009)
    This thesis describes the preparation and reactions of some cyclomanganated chalcones, dienones and aryl ketones. Investigation has previously been undertaken into the reaction of cyclomanganated chalcones and dienones ...
  • Studies Towards a pH-Sensitive Anticancer Prodrug Model

    Teng, Xiao Shi (The University of Waikato, 2010)
    Tumour-activated prodrug (TAP) is designed to aim at increasing the prodrug selectivity to kill cancer cells. One strategy to is to design a TAP containing an amine cytotoxin, present as an amide function, which could be ...
