  • Al-doped Zinc Oxide as a Transparent Conductive Material

    Linklater, Rachael Annette (University of Waikato, 2011)
    ZnO powders containing from 1-8 atom% aluminium ions were prepared from aqueous citrate-aminoalcohol-based gels calcined at 500◦C. The powders were characterized using 27Al NMR, X-ray diffraction (XRD), and scanning electron ...
  • 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 ...
  • The Composition of Arylstibonic Acids

    Wright, Cody Elvin (University of Waikato, 2010)
    This thesis describes a detailed ESI-MS investigation into the arylstibonic acids, organo-antimony-containing compounds that are currently of interest as anticancer reagents. Four arylstibonic acids, of nominal formula ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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, ...
  • 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 ...
  • Polymetallic Silyl-Iron and -Ruthenium Compounds

    Masters, Neville Kingston (The University of Waikato, 2010)
    The synthesis of iron and ruthenium compounds which contain either end-capped silyl units Fe-Si-Si-Fe or the linear sequence Si-Ru-Ru-Si respectively were explored. (I) (II) (III) End-capped iron ...
  • A Reinvestigation of Salvarsan and Related Arsenic Chemistry.

    Lloyd, Nicholas (University of Waikato, 2011)
    In 1910 the first deliberately targeted search for a new chemotherapeutic agent came to fruition when Paul Ehrlich introduced Salvarsan for the treatment of syphilis. This thesis presents a detailed review of the history ...
  • 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), ...
  • The Status of Iodine and Selenium in Waikato Soils

    McNally, Samuel Rae (University of Waikato, 2011)
    This thesis investigates the status of the essential trace elements iodine and selenium in Waikato soils. Soil samples (368) representing different Soil Orders, land uses and soil depths were examined. A tetramethyl ...
  • 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 ...
