The metal-catalyzed etching and growth of diamond
Metals have been used in the past to grow diamond in high temperature/high pressure reactors. In our research we used metals to grow diamond at low pressures and low temperatures. A vertical vibratory hot-walled reactor ...
Novel chemistry of elemental carbon: Graphite, fullerenes and nanotubes
The goal of this work was to examine the chemistry that one can do with various fluorinated forms of elemental carbon. As a prelude to the experimental worked out for this thesis, a brief discussion of the various allotropic ...
Surface and coordination chemistry related to GaAs
The vapor phase structures of Al(tBU)3 and Ga(tBU)3 have been investigated by gas phase electron diffraction and consist of planar three-coordinate monomers. Salient structural parameters (ra) include: Al-C = 2.005(3) A, ...
