  1. 1. Point defect interactions and structural stability of compounds

    Author : Vitaly Baykov; Börje Johansson; Peter Mohn; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; first principles; ab initio; density functional theory; point defects interactions; diluted magnetic semiconductors; structural stability; zirconium alloys; Other materials science; Övrig teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : Theoretical studies of point defect interactions and structural stability of compounds have been performed using density functional theory. The defect-related properties, such as activation energy of diffusion, electronic and magnetic structure of selected materials have been studied. READ MORE

  4. 4. Nucleic Acids as Drugs and Drug Targets With Focus on Anticancer Active Platinum Complexes and Small Interfering RNAs

    Author : Hanna Hedman; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Anticancer drugs; platinum complexes; cisplatin; oxaliplatin; nucleic acid; RNA; DNA; siRNA; thermodynamic stability; mass spectrometry; MALDI-MS; chemical probing; luciferase assay;

    Abstract : To ensure that patients receive a safe and effective treatment, it is important to understand how drugs interact with and affect molecules within a cell. Here, evaluation of platinum based drugs and their ability to interfere with nucleic acid functions is presented. READ MORE

  5. 5. Long-term Environmental Problems, Economic Measures and Physical Indicators

    Author : Christian Azar; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : stability analysis; discounting; environmental debt; sustainability; intergenerational; weight factors; population dynamics; the greenhouse effect; economics; indicators;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of five papers and an introduction dealing with various aspects of the use of environmental resources. In both Paper I, The marginal cost of CO2 emissions, and Paper II, Discounting and distributional considerations in the context of global warming, we analyse the economics of the greenhouse effect.
