    • Application of multivariate regression techniques to paint: for the quantitive FTIR spectroscopic analysis of polymeric components 

      Phala, Adeela Colyne (Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2011)
      It is important to quantify polymeric components in a coating because they greatly influence the performance of a coating. The difficulty associated with analysis of polymers by Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) analysis’s ...
    • Nickel pollution abatement from landfill leachate using biomaterials 

      Kakalanga, Sumbu (Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2012)
      Batch experiments were conducted to assess the removal of Ni(II) from aqueous solutions and landfill leachates using low cost adsorbents eggplant peel (EGP), sweet potato peel (SWP) and banana peel (BNP). Preliminary studies ...
    • Separation of racemates via host-guest chemistry 

      Sebogisi, Baganetsi Karabo (Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2012)
      Chirality is very important to the pharmaceutical industry as enantiomers have the same macroproperties except for their optical and pharmacological activity. Industrial research has thus focused to find the most effective ...
    • Structure and reactivity of selected binaphthyl derivatives 

      Kabwit, Rodriguez Yav (Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2013)
      In this thesis, the complexation behaviour of the host compounds, 1,1’-binaphthyl- 2,2’-dicarboxylic acid (BNDA) and 1,1’-binaphthyl-2,2’-diol (BINOL) were investigated. These hosts are large, bulky and scissor shaped; ...
    • Synergistic effects in clathrate selectivity 

      Sayed, Amina (Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2012)
      The inclusion behaviour of a series of hydroxyl hosts with a variety of liquid guests has been investigated. The host 9-(4-methoxyphenyl)-9H-xanthen-9-ol (A1), C20H16O3, forms inclusion compounds with aniline (ANI), ...
