  • Synthesis, Characterisation and Applications of Novel Ionic Liquids.

    Ying, Lucia (Li) (The University of Waikato, 2006)
    A series of novel phosphinate-based ionic liquids have been synthesised using various organic phosphorus acids, such as mono-n-octylphosphinic acid (octylPO₂H₂), mono-n-hexylphosphinic acid (hexylPO₂H₂), di-n-octylphosphinic ...
  • Hybrid Solid-State Hydrogen Storage Materials

    Benge, Kathryn Ruth (The University of Waikato, 2008)
    This thesis investigates the chemistry of ammonia borane (NH₃BH₃) relevant to the development of hydrogen storage systems for vehicular applications. Because of its high hydrogen content and low molecular weight ammonia ...
  • Stabilisation effects of ferrocenylalkyl groups on hydrides of heavier main group elements

    Asamizu, Toshie (University of Waikato, 2013)
    New hydrides of heavier p-block main group elements with a ferrocenylalkyl moiety, Fc(CH₂)nEHm (Fc = (CpFeC₅H₄-); E = P, As, Si, Ge or Se; n = 1, 2, 4, 6 or 11; m = 1, 2 or 3) and FcCH₂P(R)H (R = CH₃, C₆H₁₁ or p-CH₂C₆H₄NO₂), ...
  • An Investigation of the Multifunctional Alkylation Chemistry of [Pt₂(μ-S)₂(PPh₃)₄]

    Ujam, Oguejiofo Theophilus (University of Waikato, 2011)
    This thesis presents the studies on the multifunctional alkylation of the metalloligand [Pt₂ (μ-S)₂(PPh₃)₄] 1.1. Multifunctional organic groups which include semicarbazone and thiosemicarbazone, urea, isocyanate, guanidine, ...
  • Asymmetric Ligands Derived from Carbohydrates

    Jarman, Bevan Peter (University of Waikato, 2011)
    This thesis describes the incorporation of carbohydrate groups in thiourea, 1, or iminophosphorane, 2, ligands. Several carbohydrate acyl thioureas, 3, were synthesised from the reaction of protected and unprotected ...
