(University of Canterbury. Department of Geology, 1950)
Churches in metropolitan Christchurch : a study in urban geography.
(University of Canterbury. Geography, 1958)
The object of this thesis: lack of any previous studies in this field of urban geography; lack of source material; the church in the English village; the geographic importance of churches in determining the settlement ...
An ecological survey of the pakihi lands of the Westport District, Nelson
(University of Canterbury. Botany, 1951)
Two hundred thousand acres of wasteland. This land known as the pakihis stretches intermittently from West Nelson down the coast to South Westland. Flat or gently rolling, a vivid green in colour, it appears to form excellent ...
Some correlates of superior academic ability.
(University of Canterbury, 1959)
In very general terms the problem is to distinguish some factors associated with intellectual ability. The correlates sought were not thought to exist in any particular region but were sought merely as correlates 'per ...
The effect of dielectric constant on the kinetics of the bromacetate-thiosulphate reaction
(University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 1951)
1. The variation of the rate of the bromacetate-thiosulphate reaction has been studied with respect to variation in temperature, ionic strength and dielectric constant. 2. Within the limits of experimental error, the ...
The acid hdrolysis of methymalonamic acid
(University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 1953)
The acid hydrolysis of diamides of the malonic series is represented by the general equation: - [Diagram] where K₁ and K₂ are the specific rate constants for the hydrolysis of an amide group. In simplest principle, ...
The Seaports of the South Island of New Zealand : A Comparative Study in Port Geography.
(University of Canterbury. Geography, 1954)
The study of urban geography has received increasing attention in recent years both in this country and overseas. Its content and method have been recently surveyed, and a considerable amount of research on these lines has ...
The ultra-violet absorption spectra of certain ketimines and their related ketones
(University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 1952)
1. A review has been made if the preparation and properties of ketimines. At present no similar review exists in the chemical literature. 2. A discussion of the processes of absorption, with particular reference to the ...
The alkaline hydrolysis of ethyl 1-naphthoate, ethyl 3-methyl-1-naphthoate and ethyl 4-methyl-1-naphthoate in ethanol-water
(University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 1956)
3-Methyl-1-naphthoic acid, a compound not previously known, has been prepared. The kinetics of the alkaline hydrolysis of ethyl 1-naphthoate, ethyl 3-methyl-1-naphthoate, and ethyl 4-methyl-1-naphthoate in ethanol-water ...
The catalytic effect of aqueous acetic acid solutions on the racemisation of trans-αγ-dimethylglutaconic acid at 100°C
(University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 1950)
The Peculiar properties of the compounds of the type HO₂C·CH:CH·CH₂·CO₂H which caused so much interest among early investigators were- 1. The existence of two forms, one more stable than the other. 2. The ready manner ...
