Studies of oriented molecules using coincidence time-of-flight mass spectroscopy
A beam of symmetric top (CX3Y) molecules is state-selected using an inhomogeneous hexapole electric field and then oriented by homogeneous electric fields. A fast neutral atomic potassium beam produced via charge-exchange ...
Synthesis and in vitro characterization of a bone-vectored carbon(60) derivative
The first tissue-vectored fullerene derivative, C60 (OH)16AMBP (4,4-bisphosphono-2-(polyhydroxyl-1,2-dihydro-1,2-methanofullerene-61-carboxamido)-butyric acid), designed to target bone tissue, has been synthesized, ...
Large-scale production and purification of single-walled carbon nanotubes
Single Walled Nanotubes were produced in large scale by Laser Vaporization with maximum yields of 50%. Optimization experiments give relative yields of (Nickel Cobalt (1:1 atomic % each)) = (Nickel Tungsten (1:1)) $>$ ...
Investigating the electronic properties of carbon nanostructures with scanning tunneling microscopy
Utilizing the scanning tunneling microscope, the electronic and structural properties of a variety of carbon based nanostructures, are explored. Among these, threefold electron scattering on graphite generated by vacancies ...
Molecular simulation and theory of polyatomic associating fluids
In this thesis the thermodynamic properties of model polyatomic molecules with association interactions was studied using molecular simulation and theory. The Metropolis Monte Carlo technique was used to perform simulations ...
