    • Atom transfer radical polymerisation of unusual monomers 

      Staisch, Ingrid (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2003-12)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Controlled free radical polymerisation techniques offer several practical and theoretical advantages compared to many other polymerisation techniques. Living polymerisation techniques such as anionic ...

    • Investigation of the copolymerization of butyl acrylate (BA) with vinyl neononanoate (VeoVA-9) 

      Hadasha, Waled (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2006-12)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This study has the goal of illuminating structure-properties relationships for copolymers of vinyl neononanoate (VeoVa-9) and butyl acrylate (BA). The VeoVa-9/BA copolymers were prepared using solution ...

    • 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 ...
