• 2,1-Benzothiazines: preparation and reactivity 

    Calkins, Nathan L., 1982- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2010)
    The synthesis of chiral ligands to tune the reactivity and stereoselectivity of many catalytic asymmetric reactions has been given considerable attention in synthetic organic chemistry over the past decade. This report ...
  • Characterizing and understanding self-assembling, nanocapsule host-guest systems 

    Whetstine, Jena L., 1981- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2010)
    Supramolecular, self-assembled nanocapsules have been shown to be capable of entrapping fluorescent guests. Previous solid- and solution-state research, focusing on hydrogen-bonded C-alkylpyrogallol[4]arenes (PgC6)nanocapsules, ...
  • Novel macrocyclic compounds as building blocks in supramolecular chemistry 

    Thavornyutikarn, Praput, 1976- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2010)
    Resorcinarenes and pyrogallolarenes have been widely used as building blocks for novel synthetic receptors and supramolecular self-assemblies. To explore new chemistry of these compounds, new substituted macrocyclic arenes ...
  • Radioanalytical multi-elemental analysis: new methodology and archaeometric applications 

    Coleman, Magen E., 1984- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2010)
    Several projects are covered in this dissertation: the application of instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA) and rigorous statistical analyses to the sourcing of Egyptian limestone and Kenyan obsidian, and the ...
