    • Karst and solution processes 

      Williams, Paul (Oxford University PressUniversity of Canterbury. Geography, 2001)
      Karst develops on rocks where solution (or corrosion, as it is sometimes called ) is the dominant landscape-forming process, even though the full suite of other geomorphic processes occurs. All rocks dissolve in natural ...

    • Killing Begets Killing: Evidence From a Bug-Killing Paradigm That Initial Killing Fuels Subsequent Killing 

      Martens, A.; Kosloff, S.; Greenberg, J.; Landau, M.J.; Schmader, T. (University of Canterbury. Psychology., 2007)
      Killing appears to perpetuate itself even in the absence of retaliation. This phenomenon may occur in part as a means to justify prior killing and so ease the threat of prior killing. In addition, this effect should arise ...
    • Kin recognition and MHC discrimination in African clawed frog (Xenopus laevis) tadpoles. 

      Villinger, Jandouwe (University of Canterbury. School of Biological Sciences, 2007)
      Kin-recognition abilities, first demonstrated 25 years ago in toad tadpoles, now appear to be widespread among amphibians. In some vertebrates kin recognition is based, at least in part, on highly polymorphic major ...
    • Kinect Surface Tracking 

      Eagle, James (University of Canterbury. Physics and Astronomy, 2014)
      A cost effective method for evaluating patient motion during external beam radiotherapy has been developed. This system consists of a 3D depth camera and tracking software. The system was tested using a range of custom ...

      Schulte, Daniel (University of Canterbury. Geological Sciences, 2011)
      The Paparoa Metamorphic Core Complex developed in the Mid-Cretaceous due to continental extension conditioning the crust for the eventual breakup of the Gondwana Pacific Margin, which separated Australia and New Zealand. ...
    • Kinetic Resolution of alpha-Acetoxy-N-Acyl Oxazolidinethiones by a Chiral O-Nucleophilic Acyl Transfer Catalyst 

      Notte, G.T.; Sammakia, T.; Steel, P.J. (University of Canterbury. Chemistry., 2005)
      We recently described a series of catalysts bearing a hydroxyl group in close proximity to a basic amine which effect the methanolysis of para-nitrophenyl (PNP) esters.1 These catalysts, an example of which is provided in ...
    • Kinetic studies of platinum complexes 

      Hindmarsh, Kathryn (University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 1998)
      Since the chance discovery, in 1967, of the anti-tumour activity of cisplatin, cis-dichlorodiammineplatinum(II), research has focussed on studying the reactions of this and other related complexes in an effort to elucidate ...
    • The kinetics and mechanism of the oxidation of formate ions by peroxodisulphate ions 

      O'Flynn, T. J. (University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 1968)
      The kinetics of -the peroxoclisulphate/formate reaction have been studied using four methods, (1) By titrating aliquots of reaction mixture, (2) By following pH changes, (3) By a manual pH-stat. (4) By an automatic ...
    • Kinetics and photochemistry of transient free-radicals 

      Meads, Roger Francis (University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 1992)
      We report here several experimental and theoretical studies of free-radicals in the gas phase. Bimolecular rate constants for the reactions BH + NO → products k = 1.26 →!± 0.07 x 10^10 cm^3 s^-1 BH + C2H4 → ...
    • The kinetics of the substitution of mesitylene and 1,3-dimethyl-5-tertiary butyl benzene with nitric acid, iodine monochloride and iodine 

      Barwell, M. R. (University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 1954)
      While the hyperconjugative effect has been established in benzene ring substitution (1), the conditions under which it occurs have not been fully investigated. In the present work a series of rate measurements were made ...
    • KiwiSpec: The Design and Performance of a High Resolution Echelle Spectrograph for Astronomy 

      Gibson, Steven Ross (University of Canterbury. Physics and Astronomy, 2013)
