  1. 1. The content, chemical state and accumulation of vanadium in a drill core of Alum shale from Kinnekulle

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiska institutionen

    Author : Niklas Gunnarsson; [2019]
    Keywords : Alum Shale Formation; Alum shale; Kinnekulle; Vanadium; Inorganic chemistry; Oorganisk kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : Exploitation of alum shale is a controversial subject in Sweden due to the history of pollution of the environment and groundwater, from past mining industries. The extraction of vanadium from alum shale is no different. Nevertheless the metal is a valuable resource used in tools, building, industries and aerospace materials. READ MORE

  2. 2. Synthesis and Characterization of some Photo-CORM and Photosensitizers

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiska institutionen

    Author : Joachim Björklund; [2019]
    Keywords : Inorganic Chemistry; Bioinorganic Chemistry; CORM; Photo-CORM; Photosensitizers; Synthesis; Characterization; Oorganisk kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : It is well known that Carbon monoxide is a toxic and hazardous gas, but during recent years it has been proven that using a controlled concentration, carbon monoxide can in fact be used as a therapeutic agent, and can contribute to decrease malaria, treat cardiovascular and lung diseases and potentially even treat cancer, among other things. The main problem in using carbon monoxide directly is the fact that it is not trivial to control the volume of gas inhaled, compromising its use as a therapeutic agent. READ MORE

  3. 3. Poly(triazine imide) : Growing Larger Crystallites of CrystallineCarbon Nitride and Understanding Their Dissolution

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för kemi - Ångström

    Author : Marcus Liljenberg; [2018]
    Keywords : Carbon Nitride;

    Abstract : Crystalline carbon nitride has been a hot topic for the last ten years because of reports claiming it could work as a photocatalyst for cheap water splitting, a catalyst for difficult reactions inorganic chemistry and the use as a potential two-dimensional semiconductor.The carbon nitride of interest in this project is poly(triazineimide) (PTI), which has a layered structure similar to graphite.

  4. 4. PTA Ruthenium-aminochloroquinoline complexes: Antimalarials of the future

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiska institutionen

    Author : Maria Alejandra Silva Quintero; [2017]
    Keywords : Chemistry;

    Abstract : Malaria is a disease that is transmitted by mosquitoes; it has been transmitedaffecting humanity for more than 10.000 years, it affects between 700 000 and 2.7million people per year and it can be deadly, therefore there is a large and increasinginterest in developing a cure against it.

  5. 5. 2-Hydroxypyridine-Ligated Pd-complexes as pre-catalysts in Hydrogen Borrowing Chemistry α -Alkylation of Ketones Using Alcohols

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiska institutionen

    Author : Ayesha Kanwal; [2017]
    Keywords : Hydrogen Borrowing in activation of alcohols; Palladium in Catalysis; hydrogenation and dehydrogenation reactions; hydrogen borrowing concept for hydrogenation and dehydrogenation reactions; 2-hydroxyquinoline Ligand; 2-hydroxy pyridine ligands; inorganic chemistry; oorganisk kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : An efficient method for selective alpha-alkylation of ketones with alcohols was developed using 2-hydroxypyridine-based ligands coordinated by palladium as pre-catalysts. The reactions were performed without additional additives under mild reaction conditions. The method is environmentally friendly to build C-C bond as water is the only byproduct. READ MORE
