Welcome to UWSpace
UWSpace is the University of Waterloo's institutional repository for the research and scholarship produced by its faculty, students, and staff. A service of the Library, UWSpace provides researchers with a free, secure, and long-term home for the presentation, dissemination, and preservation of their research and scholarship. By utilizing UWSpace researchers ensure their work achieves compliance with the Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications.
Looking for Waterloo theses and dissertations? UWSpace contains all theses and dissertations published from October 2006 on, and a subset from 1996 through 2006, when electronic submission was optional. Older theses can be accessed by searching the library catalogue by title or author last name.

(Society & Natural Resources, 2020-06-17)This article offers a framework for analyzing and extending the recent wave of national “keep it in the ground” (KIIG) bans on fossil fuel exploration and production. We situate this discussion in new theoretical work on ...
(American Chemical Society, 2019-09-09)Starch nanoparticles (SNPs) were hydrophobically modified using 1-pyrenebutyric acid (PyBA) with degrees of substitution (DS) between 0.0006 and 0.11. Fluorescence quenching studies were conducted on the pyrene-labeled ...
Dimensions of Quinoline-Based Foldamers Labeled with Oligo(phenylene vinylene) Probed in Solution by Time-Resolved Fluorescence Anisotropy (American Chemical Society, 2019-07-24)A series of oligoquinolines (Qn with n = 1 – 32) was prepared with an oligo(phenylene vinylene) (OPV) fluorophore covalently attached at one end via a rigid amide bond. The fluorescence decays of the OPV-Qn solutions in ...
Probing the Interactions between Mimics of Pour Point Depressants (PPDs) and Viscosity Index Improvers (VIIs) in Engine Oil Using Fluorescently Labeled PPDs (American Chemical Society, 2019-03-18)The level of interpolymeric interactions experienced by a pyrene-labeled poly(octadecyl methacrylate) labeled with 6.7 mol% of 1-pyrenebutanol (Py(6.7)-PC18MA) was characterized by fluorescence in the presence of an amorphous ...
Surfactant-Structure Dependent Interactions with Modified Starch Nanoparticles Probed by Fluorescence Spectroscopy (American Chemical Society, 2019-02-05)The interactions between the surfactants sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) and sodium dioctylsulfosuccinate (AOT) and starch nanoparticles hydrophobically modified with the hydrophobic dye pyrene (Py-SNPs) were investigated in ...
