    • Arborescent Core–Shell–Corona Copolymers by Self-Assembly as Templates for the Preparation of Metallic Nanoparticles 

      Worku, Aklilu (University of Waterloo, 2020-11-19)
      The preparation of metallic nanoparticles has been a rapidly growing field of research in recent years, because of the unique physical properties and applications of these materials. The development of applications for ...
    • Arborescent Polypeptides for Sustained Drug Delivery Applications 

      Alsehli, Mosa (University of Waterloo, 2017-08-09)
      This Ph.D. dissertation describes the synthesis of arborescent copolymers of generations G1 and G2 designed to serve as drug delivery nanocarriers for cancer treatment. Poly(γ-benzyl L-glutamate) (PBG) building blocks were ...
    • Fluorescently Labeled Latex Particles to Monitor Film Formation 

      Hisko, Victoria (University of Waterloo, 2017-10-25)
      The influence of the length of an oligo(ethylene glycol) spacer (EGn, where n is the number of ethylene glycol units) in a 1-pyrenemethoxy-EGn methacrylate (PyEG-MA) monomer on the incorporation of the monomer into a ...
    • Hydrophobic Modification of Starch 

      Amos, Ryan (University of Waterloo, 2019-08-27)
      Starch is a very common polysaccharide with multiple applications in the industry, but the range of physical properties exhibited by that material is relatively limited due to its strongly hydrophilic character. The work ...
    • Smart Polymeric Materials by Ring-Opening Metathesis Polymerization 

      Neqal, Mehdi (University of Waterloo, 2017-09-22)
      The aim of this Thesis work was to address the issue of microbial contamination inside fuel tanks. Microorganisms induce the chemical corrosion of airplane tank walls due to their production of organic acids. Biocide ...
    • Synthesis and Characterization of Furan-Based Non-ionic Surfactants (FBNIOS) 

      Liu, Donghan (University of Waterloo, 2021-01-27)
      A series of furan-based non-ionic surfactants (fbnios) derived from 5-(chloromethyl)furfural (5-CMF), a feedstock prepared by Origin Materials through a carbon negative process, were prepared from commercially available ...
    • Synthesis of Polylactide-block-Poly(L-Lysine) Block Copolymers 

      Wang, Liying (University of Waterloo, 2018-03-06)
      Polylactide (PLA) is an important biodegradable, biocompatible and renewable material that has been studied for many years for biomedical applications such as tissue scaffolding and surgical sutures. The research project ...
    • Using Pyrene to Probe Interparticle Polymer Diffusion in a Latex Film 

      Casier, Remi (University of Waterloo, 2015-12-16)
      Fluorescence has been used for many years as a powerful analytical tool to probe the formation of films from aqueous latex dispersions. Currently, the most widely used method is fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET), ...
