    • Alternating hetero-arm copolymer molecular brushes as scaffolds for inorganic nano-wires 

      Hadasha, Waled Ajili (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2013-03)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This study describes the synthesis and self-assembly of hetero-arm molecular brushes (hetero-arm MBs). These MBs consist of two polymeric side chains (SCs) of different natures, alternatingly distributed ...

    • NMR studies of radical polymerization processes 

      Klumperman, Bert (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2012-12)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Examples of the use of NMR spectroscopy in the study of radical polymerization processes have been described. The studies presented have made a significant contribution to the ...

    • NMR studies on the mechanism of iodine mediated polymerisation 

      Wright, Trevor (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2011-12)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: In reverse iodine transfer polymerisation (RITP), chain transfer agents (CTAs) are generated in situ from the reaction between 2,2’-azobis(isobutyronitrile) (AIBN) and molecular iodine. This stage of ...
