Assessing and characterizing the inductive effect through silicon containing backbones and on silicon reactivity
This thesis describes a study of the inductive effect in derivatives of bicyclo[1.1.1.]pentane; chosen because it eliminates any possibility of conjugation between the substituent and probe, and keeps the steric effect ...
Gallium nitride, indium nitride, and heterostructure development using the MEAglow growth system
This thesis presents an in depth study of semiconductor development using a new process termed Migration Enhanced Afterglow (MEAglow). The MEAglow growth reactor is housed in the Lakehead University Semiconductor Research ...
The design, synthesis and enzymatic evaluation of aminocyclitol inhibitors of glucocerebrosidase
Gaucher disease, the most common lysosomal storage disorder, is caused by mutations in the GBA gene which codes for the enzyme glucocerebrosidase (GCase) resulting in its deficiency. GCase deficiency results in the ...
Synthesis and electrochemical study of palladium-based nanomaterials for green energy applications
Rising global energy consumption leads to increased environmental impacts. The continued use of current energy resources, e.g. fossil fuels, will exaggerate the cumulative nature of CO2 byproduct emissions in the atmosphere. ...
Growth and characterization of group III-nitrides by migration enhanced afterglow epitaxy
The work presented in this thesis investigates the growth and properties of group III- nitride semiconductors that were grown using the Migration Enhanced Afterglow Epitaxy (MEAglow) method. This work was to enhance the ...
