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 ...
Strategies for antibiofouling membranes
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2015-03)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Membrane filtration is increasingly used for municipal and industrial wastewater treatment because it is an effective way to filter out bacteria and organic compounds. One of the largest problems is ...
