  1. 1. Microwave power device characterization

    Author : Kristoffer Andersson; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; statistical estimation; self-heating; Silicon Carbide; Gallium Nitride; mixer; thermal resistance; wide bandgap; microwave; error-correction; small-signalmodel;

    Abstract : The first part of the thesis covers work done on device characterizationmethods. A statistical method for estimating small-signal model parametersin FET-models was proposed. A maximum likelihood estimator wasderived and the new method was compared to a standard direct extractiontechnique. READ MORE

  2. 2. Fast Chemistry by Microwave Heating : First Descriptions of Highly Enantioselective Microwave Protocols for Metal Catalysis; First Descriptions of in-situ Gas Generation for Fast Combinatorial Microwave Chemistry

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Nils-Fredrik K. Kaiser; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmaceutical chemistry; Farmaceutisk kemi; PHARMACY Pharmaceutical chemistry; FARMACI Farmaceutisk kemi; Organic Pharmaceutical Chemistry; organisk farmaceutisk kemi;

    Abstract : Microwave heating was applied to different palladium-catalyzed allylic substitution reactions. The use of various nucleophiles demonstrated C-, N-, O- and S- nucleophilicity. High yields and stereopurities of the corresponding alkyls, amides, ethers and sulfones were afforded after only 30 – 120 s of heating. READ MORE

  3. 3. Migration from plastic food packaging during microwave heating

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Jonas Alin; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; migration; food packaging; microwave; degradation; food simulant; antioxidant;

    Abstract : Microwave heating of food has increased rapidly as a food processing technique. This increases the concern that chemicals could migrate from food packaging to food. The specific effect of microwave heating in contrast to conventional heating on overall and specific migration from common plastic food storage boxes was studied in this work. READ MORE

  4. 4. Palladium-Catalysed Carbon–Carbon Coupling Reactions Focusing on Microwave Heating, Low Catalyst Concentrations, Aqueous Conditions, Regioselectivity and Medicinal Chemistry Applications

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Riina K Arvela; Uppsala universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Suzuki coupling; Heck reaction; palladium; microwave heating; water; vinyl ethregioselective; HIV-1 integrase inhibitor; PHARMACY Pharmaceutical chemistry; FARMACI Farmaceutisk kemi; farmaceutisk biokemi; Pharmaceutical Biochemistry;

    Abstract : It is widely accepted that palladium is one of the most useful catalysts in organic chemistry, and many palladium(0)-catalysed carbon–carbon bond-forming reactions have been developed over the years. In addition, the ever-growing need for more environmentally benign processes in the chemical industry has driven scientists to look for greener options while developing new methodologies for organic synthesis.

  5. 5. Advances in Microwave Hyperthermia Treatment using Time Reversal

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Hana Dobsicek Trefna; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; microwave hyperthermia; time reversal; microwave thermometry; annular phased array; amplifier system; treatment planning;

    Abstract : The last twenty years have seen many clinical studies showing the ability of hyperthermia to remarkably enhance response to radiation therapy and chemotherapy. The objective of hyperthermia treatment is to raise the temperature in tumors to therapeutic levels, for a sufficient period of time, in order to achieve cell death or render the cells more sensitive to ionizing radiation and/or chemotherapy.
