    • The Jahn-Teller effect in magneto-optical spectroscopy of axial radicals. 

      Taylor, Kirsten Clare Lake (University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 2000)
      A model has been developed to describe the effects of the Jahn-Teller (JT) effect on the magnetic circular dichroism (MCD) and absorption spectra of axial molecules. It treats spin-orbit and Jahn-Teller coupling on equal ...

      Mellis, Richard Alexander (University of Canterbury, 2016)
      Potential hydrothermal deposits were recognised within the late-Eocene to early-Oligocene volcanic tuff and overlying volcaniclastic grit at Kakanui South Head, Oamaru, New Zealand. The deposits included discrete pink ...
    • Kaluza Klein Dark Matter Analysis with the AMANDA Neutrino Telescope 

      Han, Kahae (University of Canterbury. Physics and Astronomy, 2010)
      In this work the search for the dark matter arising from a model of extra dimensions, otherwise known as Kaluza Klein WIMPs, on the data taken with the AMANDA neutrino telescope in the South Pole is presented. The limit ...
    • Keto acid phosphoranes: structure, synthesis, and bromolactonisation 

      Trent, John O. (University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 1992)
      This thesis examines the structure, synthesis, and bromolactonisation of keto acid phosphoranes. Chapter One discusses the structure and the intra- and intermolecular hydrogen bonding preferences of a number of keto acid ...
    • 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 ...
    • Kinematics of the Paparoa Metamorphic Core Complex, West Coast, South Island, New Zealand. 

      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 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 ...
