• The Design and Application of Self-assembled Cooperative Catalysts

      Bandi, Bhanumathi (Auckland University of Technology, 2020)
      This thesis describes the application of self-assembly and cooperativity in the design of efficient catalytic systems. In particular, we are looking at chemical reactions which require two or more catalytic units working ...
    • The Effect of Ionic Liquids Solvents on the Dehydration of Alcohols

      Kapila, Bhavana (Auckland University of Technology, 2020)
      Ionic liquids have a unique combination of intermolecular interactions that give rise to unusual structure features including the formation of amphiphilic nanostructures with well-defined polar and non-polar domains. The ...
    • Operation of Microbial Electrolysis Cells for Methane Production

      Perez, Danilo (Auckland University of Technology, 2021)
      Microbial electrolysis cells (MECs) are capable of enhancing naturally occurring methanogenesis, achieving efficient small-scale methane production from a range of organic matter feedstock when a low voltage is applied. ...
