  • N-Heterocyclic carbene-catalysed transformations : the crossed benzoin condensation and oxidative aldehyde esterifications 

    Delany, Eoghan (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Chemistry, 2016)
    The focus of this thesis is the development of a suite of heteroazolium ion-based salts as precursors to N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) catalysts for a range of transformations involving aldehyde substrates. It has been ...
  • N-Heterocyclic carbene-mediated reactions : controlling the fate of the Breslow Intermediate 

    Fagan, Claire-Louise (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Chemistry, 2015)
    We have developed a highly efficient, broad scope, additive-free mild protocol for the oxidative carbene-catalysed esterification of aldehydes. We have unambiguously identified benzoin as the oxidised species in these ...
  • Naked objects 

    Pawson, Richard (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2004)
    The original concept of object-oriented software development was that the objects would be 'behaviouslly-complete' representations of the domain entities that they model. Although object oriented technologies now pervade ...

  • Nanomechanical forming studies of thin polymer films 

    O'Connell, Barry (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Physics, 2008)
    Nanoimprint is a technique that involves mechanical patterning using a rigid patterned stamp on a deformable thin film to produce nanostructures. It is also a technique that is the focus of much research because of the ...
  • Nanomechanical Label Free Micro RNA Detection For Cancer And Liver Injury Diagnosis 

    DUFFY, JAMES (Trinity College Dublin. School of Physics. Discipline of Physics, 2019)
    A biosensor is a device in which a biological component is coupled to a transducer which converts a biological recognition event into a detectable signal. Microribonucleic acid (miRNA, microRNA) are non protein coding ...
  • Nanomechanical resonators for clinical coagulation diagnostics and malaria vaccine candidates analysis 

    PADOVANI, FRANCESCO (Trinity College Dublin. School of Physics. Discipline of Physics, 2018)
    The development of a microcantilevers-based (MC-based) clinical diagnostic instrument that employs the dynamic mode of operation (microresonators) is presented. The device exploits microresonator arrays that are actively ...
  • Nanomedicines for the treatment of coagulation disorders 

    Maguire, Ciarán Manus (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Medicine. Discipline of Clinical Medicine, 2016)
    Nanomaterials are becoming increasingly utilised in all areas of science, technology and healthcare. More specifically in terms of nanomedicine, the physical and chemical properties of the materials allow for application ...
  • Nanometer-size metal complexes : magnetic materials and DNA probes 

    Di Trapani, Antonella (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Chemistry, 2004)
    The work described in this thesis was carried out as part of the European TMR Network “Nanometer-size metal complexes” (Contract N ERBMRXCT980226). The synthesis of Cr(III) homoleptic and heteroleptic polypyridyl complexes ...
  • Nanopatterning magnetic materials - Cr/Mo(110) epitaxial system and Fe3O4(111) surface 

    Cazacu, Alexandru (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Physics, 2006)
