• #### Synthetic Applications of Polar Transition Metal Metallocenes ﻿

(2013-10-01)
Since the sandwich structure of ferrocene was elucidated in 1952, metallocenes have generated a vast amount of interest. Transition metal metallocenes have previously been shown to be suitable precursors in the syntheses ...
• #### Synthesis and Coordination Chemistry of Functionalised Phosphazanes ﻿

(2016-10-27)
This thesis focuses on the chemistry of novel phosphazane species derived from the chloro-phosphazanes [ClP(μ-NR)]$_2$ and their use as ligands and building blocks for macrocyclic compounds. The introduction (Chapter 1) ...
• #### A Window into Selective Catalytic Reduction: a RAIRS Study of NO and NH3 on Cu{311} ﻿

(2017-04-29)
This thesis studies the interaction between the bare Cu{311} surface with NO and NH3,individually and co-adsorbed using reﬂection-absorption infrared spectroscopy (RAIRS). In addition to the bare Cu{311} surface, the ...
• #### Development of a method for estimating methane gas emissions at high resolution ﻿

(Department of Chemistry, University of Cambridge, 2016-06-08)
Methane is the second most important anthropogenic greenhouse gas, with a radiative warming of 0.97 [0.74-1.20] W m-2 (Stocker et al., 2013a) and a global warming potential of 21 times that of CO2 over a 100 year timescale ...
