• RAFT mediated polysaccharide copolymers 

      Fleet, Reda (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2006-12)
      Cellulose, one of the most abundant organic substances on earth, is a linear polymer of D-glucose units joined through 1,4-β-linkages. Cellulose is however not easily processed without chemical modification. A number of ...
    • 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 ...
