    • Approaches to Photoactivated Cytotoxins 

      Zibaseresht, Ramin (University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 2006)
      The synthesis and coordination chemistry of eleven bridging ligands, eight of which are new compounds, are described. These ligands are all based on the tridentate terpyridyl system. The other metal ion binding sites of ...
    • Chiral Heterocyclic Ligands 

      Lewis, William (University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 2007)
      This thesis describes the preparation and characterisation of a number of homochiral coordination and metallosupramolecular assemblies. These species were formed from the reaction of chiral pyridine and quinoline containing ...
    • Image Reconstruction in Serial Femtosecond Nanocrystallography 

      Chen, Joe (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2015)
      X-ray crystallography is a form of microscopy that allows the three-dimensional arrangement of atoms belonging to molecules within crystals to be determined. In this method, a crystal is illuminated with a beam of X-rays ...
    • Reconstruction of Macromolecular Envelopes From Crystal X-Ray Diffraction Amplitudes 

      Lo, V.L.; Millane, R.P.; Kingston, R.L. (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2008)
      The envelope problem in macromolecular x-ray crystallography involves determining the boundary of a molecule from measurements of amplitudes of x-rays diffracted from a crystalline specimen. This represents a highly ...
    • Studies in Metallosupramolecular Chemistry 

      Cottam, Justine Ruth Amy (University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 2008)
      Metallosupramolecular chemistry involves the construction of nanoscale molecular assemblies by reacting metal atoms with bridging organic ligands. The metal atoms act as a type of molecular ‘glue’ binding together the ...
