  • The use of adamantane-containing compounds in polymer chemistry. 

    Yoba Ngoma, Richard Habib Patrick (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2005-12)
    The primary focus of the research was the use of adamantane-containing molecules in polymer science. The research is divided into 2 parts, the first involving the syntheses of a new ligand for use in a metallocene catalyst ...

  • The use of fluorescence to probe the morphology changes in complex polymers 

    Le Grange, Marehette Suzanne (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2015-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Impact polypropylene copolymers (IPC) are commercially used in a variety of applications. They are very complex materials and extensive studies have been conducted to understand the relationship between ...

  • The use of multidimensional GC techniques for the analysis of complex petrochemical products 

    Van der Westhuizen, Rina (Stellenbosch: University of Stellenbosch, 2005-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The composition of petrochemical products obtained from Fischer Tropsch (FT) technologies is of the highest complexity possible and may contain thousands of components. Chemicals produced from FT feedstocks ...

  • Wax characterisation by instrumental analysis 

    Webber, Glenda Vanessa (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2000-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Various companies produce waxes, which are used extensively in various applications, either as produced or as chemically or physically modified value-added products. They are used in the traditional ...

  • α-Diimine complexes of transition metals for the polymerisation of lower α-olefins 

    Fullaway, Phillip V. (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2005-12)
    In this study several potential polymerisation catalysts were synthesised. This was accomplished by coordinating α-diimine ligands such as N,N'-diferrocenyldiazabutadiene (DFDAB), N,N'-dimesityldiazabutadiene (DMDAB) as ...
