    • Nanometre-scale electrochemical switches fabricated using a plasma-based sulphidation technique 

      Thomson, A.F.; Melville, D.O.S.; Blaikie, R.J. (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering., 2006)
      Solid-state electrochemical switches are new devices that may find application in low power logic or memory circuits. The reversible electrochemical oxidation and reduction of a sub 10nm-thick silver sulphide layer is the ...
    • Nanoscale films covalently attached to conducting substrates: structure and dynamic behaviour of the layers 

      Downard, A.J. (University of Canterbury. Chemistry., 2009)
      Nanoscale organic films, typically 1-5 nm thick, can be grafted to conducting substrates by the reduction of aryldiazonium salts. The grafting procedure results in covalent attachment of the film to the substrate, through ...
    • Nanostructured heterogeneous catalysts for green oxidation processes 

      Ovoshchnikov, Daniil (University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 2014)
      The development of sustainable, environmentally benign oxidation processes of organic compounds is an important task for chemical industry. This challenge can be addressed by designing catalysts that enable the utilisation ...
    • Nanostructured Metal Electrodes for Wool Processing and Electroanalysis 

      Cruickshank, Amy Clare (University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 2007)
      The research presented in this thesis firstly concerns the use of electrochemical techniques to develop approaches to wool processing which have a lower impact on the environment than conventional chemical methods. Wool ...
    • Nanotechnologies in New Zealand: A Cross-Disciplinary Dialogue
