  2. 2. Biomimetic Reactions : Water Oxidation and Aerobic Oxidation

    Author : Lien-Hoa Tran; Björn Åkermark; Nina Kann; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cobalt II salophen; oxygen-activating catalyst; hybrid; manganese complex; epoxidation; water oxidation.; Organic chemistry; Organisk kemi; organisk kemi; Organic Chemistry;

    Abstract : This thesis deals mainly with two oxidation reactions: water oxidation and aerobic oxidation, both of which have been applied in a biomimetic fashion. In the former reaction molecular oxygen is generated whereas in the latter it was used as terminal oxidant in oxidation reactions. READ MORE

  3. 3. Single Copper Nanoparticle Oxidation

    Author : Sara Nilsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; dark-field scattering spectroscopy; single particle; plasmonic nanospectroscopy; plasmonic sensing; transmission electron microscopy; oxidation; nanoscale Kirkendall effect;

    Abstract : Cu nanoparticles are commonly used in microelectronic devices and as catalysts in, for example, methanol synthesis and methanol steam reforming reactions. However, Cu nanoparticles are prone to oxidation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Internal oxidation processing : New alloys and new simulation techniques

    Author : Henrik Larsson; KTH; []
    Keywords : Internal oxidation; nitriding; diffusion; simulation; random walk; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Nitriding and oxidising treatments of alloys for toolingpurposes have been investigated both experimentally andtheoretically. Specimens prepared by a combination of differentprocessing steps are investigated by light-optical, scanningand transmission electron microscopy and hardness measurments. READ MORE

  5. 5. Photosynthetic water oxidation : the function of two extrinsic proteins

    Author : Tatiana Shutova; Göran Samuelsson; Stenbjörn Styring; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; photosystem II; Psb0; Cah3; water oxidation; Plant physiology; Växtfysiologi;

    Abstract : The solar energy accumulated by photosynthesis over billions of years is the sole source of energy available on Earth. Photosystem II (PSII) uses the sunlight to split water, an energetically unfavorable reaction where electrons and protons are extracted from water and oxygen is released as a by-product. READ MORE
