Probing Mechanical Properties Of Molecular Crystals with Nanoindentation : Applications to Crystal Engineering
Crystal engineering is widely applied in the design of new solids with desired physical and chemical properties based on an understanding of intermolecular interactions in terms of crystal packing. The understanding of ...
Excitation Energy Transfer In Donor-Acceptor Systems Involving Metal Nanoparticles, And In Conjugated Polymers
This thesis consists of two parts and nine chapters. The first part (Part I) presents theoretical studies on non-radiative mode of excitation energy transfer (EET) in donor-acceptor (D-A) systems involving metal nanoparticles. ...
Development Of Two Dimensional Correlation And Resolved Methodologies For NMR Spectroscopic Discrimination Of Enantiomers
The research work reported in this thesis deals with the development of novel NMR experimental techniques for the spectroscopic discrimination of enantiomers dissolved in a chiral liquid crystalline medium. The information ...
Molecular Simulations Of Temperature Induced Disorder And Pressure Induced Ordering In Organic Molecular Crystals
Crystallographically solids with well defined crystal structures are normally assumed to be highly ordered. However, it is not uncommon to find considerable degree of disorder amongst many of these crystalline substances. ...
Syntheses Structural Transformations, Magnetism, Ferroelectricity and Proton Conduction of Metal Organic Frameworks (MOF) Compounds
The past few decades have witnessed an almost exponential increase in interest in the field of metal organic frameworks (MOFs), which can be evidenced from the large number of scientific articles being published routinely ...
New Anions In The Assembly Of The Open-Framework Compounds : Synthesis, Structure And Properties
Open-framework inorganic materials constitute an important area of study in materials chemistry, because of their potential applications in areas such as sorption and catalysis. After the discovery of nanoporous aluminium ...
