  • Investigation and theoretical modeling of the nonlinear optical properties of 5,10-A₂B₂ porphyrins 

    Zawadzka, Monika (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Chemistry, 2012)
    An optical limiter is a device which is transparent to ambient light but becomes opaque upon high intensity laser irradiation. Such irradiation is dangerous to human eyes and light sensitive detectors. Porphyrins, which ...
  • The adsorption of amines and other small molecules on platinum surfaces 

    Timothy, Evelyn Noelle (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Chemistry, 2004)
    This thesis presents an investigation of the adsorption and thermal decomposition of methylamine, dimethylamine, trimethylamine and s-triazine on Pt(110) and carbon monoxide, nitric oxide and nitrous oxide on Pt(331) using ...
  • Development of synthetic strategies towards multiporphyrin arrays 

    Ryan, Aoife (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Chemistry, 2011)
    The aim of this research was to develop synthetic strategies for the construction of multiporphyrin arrays with enhanced π-conjugation. Porphyrin oligomers with extended conjugation display a bathochromic shift in their ...
  • The adsorption of simple amines on platinum surfaces 

    Igoe, Anthony (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Chemistry, 2001)
    This thesis presents the results of an investigation of the adsorption of methylamine, dimethylamine, trimethylamine and ethylenediamine on Pt(111) and Pt(331). The chemical composition and geometric structure of the clean ...
  • Development and investigation of novel transition metal mediated reactions in porphyrin chemistry 

    Horn, Sabine (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Chemistry, 2009)
    The aim of this work was to extend the number of existing pathways for the synthesis of porphyrins. The focus was directed towards the development and investigation of new transition metal catalysed reactions in porphyrin ...
