New and improved syntheses of heteroatom substituted boranes (2010)
Thesis
Platt, N. New and improved syntheses of heteroatom substituted boranes. (Thesis). Salford : University of Salford

The Thesis is based upon the development of novel synthetic strategies towards heteroatom substituted boranes. The strategies that have been developed and their application towards the synthesis of new species and their characterisation are dis...

Novel precursors for the growth of TiO2 by liquid injection MOCVD (2009)
Thesis
Clarke, C. Novel precursors for the growth of TiO2 by liquid injection MOCVD. (Thesis). Salford : University of Salford

A comprehensive examination of the feasibility of producing new titania precursors by ligand substitution reactions involving the reaction between titanium tetra-isopropoxide and various dimethylamino alcohols has resulted in the synthesis, charact...

Crystal structures and phase transitions in the rare earth oxides
Thesis
Atkinson, S. Crystal structures and phase transitions in the rare earth oxides. (Thesis). University of Salford

The lanthanoid sesquioxides exhibit a number of distinct structural phases. Below 2000°C these oxides exist in three crystal systems, namely the A-type hexagonal phase, the B-type monoclinic phase and the C-type cubic phase. With increasing tempera...
