  • Diffusion within fluorite structured materials and the effect of defects 

    Plunkett, Aoife (Trinity College Dublin. School of Chemistry. Discipline of Chemistry, 2018)
    There is a current global movement toward renewable sources and away from non- renewable energy sources. This can be attributed to the limited resources and harmful effects, both economic and environmental, of non-renewables. ...
  • Organocatalysed transformations of enolisable cyclic anhydrides 

    Connon, Stephen; Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) (Trinity College Dublin. School of Chemistry. Discipline of Chemistry, 2018)
    Herein is reported our attempts at the first formal cycloaddition reaction involving either glutaric anhydride derivatives or cyclic anhydrides including an endocyclic electron-withdrawing heteroatom with different ...
  • Toward Molecular Quantum-Dot Cellular Automata: A Scanning Tunnelling Microscopy investigation 

    TORSNEY, SAMUEL (Trinity College Dublin. School of Chemistry. Discipline of Chemistry, 2018)
    In this work we used scanning tunnelling microscopy and scanning tunnelling spectroscopy to investigate the adsorption, assembly and electronic properties of two different ferrocene-decorated porphyrins on both metallic ...
  • Advances in the formal cycloadddition reaction between enolisable anhydrides and electrophiles 

    Connon, Stephen (Trinity College Dublin. School of Chemistry. Discipline of Chemistry, 2018)
    Expansion of the scope of catalytic cycloaddition reactions involving enolisable anhydrides to various Michael acceptors as electrophiles has been investigated. The reaction between homophthalic anhydrides and α-β ...
  • Chiroptically-Active Quantum Nanostructures 

    LOUDON, ALEXANDER (Trinity College Dublin. School of Chemistry. Discipline of Chemistry, 2018)
    In this research, a wide variety of fluorescent nanoparticles have been synthesised and analysed through the lens of optical activity and potential chiroptical applications. Cadmium and cadmium-free fluorescent nanoparticles ...
