The preparation, characterization and phenylacetylene polymerization of novel palladacycles
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2016-03)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT : This thesis describes the synthesis and characterization of novel cationic palladacycles derived from various N-benzylidene-2,6-diisopropylaniline ligands and their use as catalysts in the polymerization ...
Synthesis of novel glycopolymer brushes via a combination of RAFT-mediated polymerisation and ATRP
(AOSIS Publishing, 2011-04)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Glycopolymers (synthetic sugar-containing polymers) have become increasingly attractive to polymer chemists because of their role as biomimetic analogues and their potential for commercial applications. ...
Kinetic study of copolymerization and terpolymerization of N-Carboxyanhydrides of ornithine, glycine and aspartic acid
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-12)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Kinetic studies on polymerization of N-Carboxyanhydrides (NCAs) of ornithine, glycine and aspartic acid are described in this report. The studies involved the synthesis of protected amino acid derivatives ...
