The Synthesis and Characterization of Some Ir(III) Dicationic Complexes
(Virginia Tech, 1998-10-29)
The complex [IrH(COD)(PMe3)3][Cl]2o2HCl was prepared by the reaction between [Ir(COD)(PMe3)3]Cl and HCl gas in methylene chloride. The product precipitated from the solution and is soluble in polar solvents such as water, ...
Renewable Natural Polymer Thin Films and Their Interactions with Biomacromolecules
(Virginia Tech, 2014-09-16)
Natural polymers from renewable resources have attracted increasing interest as candidates for renewable energy and functional materials. In this work, the interactions between natural polymer thin films and biomacromolecules ...
The synthesis and characterization of semicrystalline polyimides
(Virginia Tech, 1994)
Computational Investigations at the Gas-Surface Interface: Organic Surface Oxidation and Hydrolysis of Chemical Warfare Agents and Simulants
(Virginia Tech, 2017-04-25)
Motivated by recent experiments in gas-surface chemistry, we report our results from computational investigations of heterogeneous systems relevant to atmospheric chemistry and protection against chemical weapons. To ...
Photo-reactive Surfactant and Macromolecular Supramolecular Structures
(Virginia Tech, 2009-04-30)
For the first time nonwoven fibrous scaffolds were electrospun from a low molar mass gemini ammonium surfactant, N,N–-didodecyl-N,N,N–,N–-tetramethyl-N,N–-ethanediyl-di-ammonium dibromide (12-2-12). Cryogenic transmission ...
Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry to Characterize Inorganic Coordination Complexes and Cyanobacteria
(Virginia Tech, 2001-04-20)
Matrix assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOFMS) is used to study several inorganic coordination complexes and a variety of compounds from cyanobacteria. Also presented is a ...
The effects of ion bombardment on the chemical reactivity of GaAs(100)
(Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, 1989)
Development of the Evanescent Wave Atomic Force Microscope
(Virginia Tech, 2005-07-26)
The conventional atomic force microscope (AFM) is equipped with a single optical detection system. Probe-sample separation is determined in an independent deflection with respect to AFM z-translation experiment. This ...
Chromatographic Properties of Silica-Based Monolithic HPLC Columns
(Virginia Tech, 2002-09-23)
Silica-based monolithic HPLC columns contain a novel chromatographic support in which the traditional particulate packing has been replaced with a single, continuous network (monolith) of porous silica. The main advantage ...
Block and Graft Copolymers Containing Carboxylate or Phosphonate Anions
(Virginia Tech, 2014-11-06)
This dissertation focuses on synthesis and characterization of graft and block copolymers containing carboxylate or phosphonate anions that are potential candidates for biomedical applications such as drug delivery and ...
