    3,5-Dibromo-2-aminobenzamide was reacted with 1,3-cyclohexanedione derivatives in the presence of iodine as catalyst in toluene under reflux to afford novel 6,8-dibromo-2-[3-(2´-alkyl-1´,2´,3´,4´-tetrahydro-6´,8´-dibromo ...
  • Bayowa, Adejoke Victoria (2014-11)
    Marshy soil and sediment samples were collected during dry and rainy seasons within Warri, and Agbarho, 20km away as control. Levels of 16 USEPA priority Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons PAHs were determined using GC-FID. ...
  • Lisa, Nyameko (2014-09)
    Under current investigation is the re-implementation of the Distorted-Wave Impulse Approximation (DWIA), originally formulated in FORTRAN by N.S. Chant and P.G. Roos, with the intention of developing it in a portable ...
  • Mathevula, Langutani Eulenda (2014-01)
    Thermal control in spacecraft will be increasingly important as the spacecraft grows smaller and more compact. Such spacecraft with low thermal mass will have to be designed to retain or reject heat more efficiently. The ...
  • High, Grant Lysle (1998-08)
    This study is presented in nine chapters as follows: Chapter one reviews the reported literature on the NMR of natural diamond. The NMR signal of diamond consists on a single line at 39 ppm from TMS and two hyperfine ...
  • Kabongo, Guy Leba (2013-11)
    Un-doped, Tb3+ as well as Yb3+ doped ZnO nanocrystals with different concentrations of RE3+ (Tb3+, Yb3+) ions were successfully synthesized via sol-gel method to produce rare earth activated zinc oxide nanophosphors. The ...
  • Mukeru, Bahati (2012-03)
    In this work we calculate the binding energies and root-mean-square radii for A−body nuclear bound state systems, where A ≥ 3. To study three−body systems, we employ the three−dimensional differential Faddeev equations ...
  • Nkuna, John Solly (2012-06)
    A two-dimensional integrodi erential equation resulting from the use of potential harmonics expansion in the many-body Schr odinger equation is used to study ground-state properties of selected few-body nuclear systems. ...
  • Benecha, Evans Moseti (2011-11)
    Magnetic ordering of dopants in diamond holds the prospect of exploiting diamond’s unique properties in the emerging field of spintronics. Several transition metal defects have been reported to order ferromagnetically ...
  • Prozesky, Andri (2011-05)
    The atomic physics relevant to gaseous nebulae is critically examined using modelling software with particular emphasis on radio recombination lines (RRLs). The theoretical spectral line intensities can be deduced if we ...
  • Rampho, Gaotsiwe Joel (2010-11)
    Electromagnetic processes induced by electron scattering off few-nucleon systems are theoretically investigated in the non-relativistic formalism. Non-relativistic one-body nuclear current operators are used with a ...
  • De Villiers, Jean Schepers (2009-11)
    The problem of fitting a material property of the earth to a certain model by analysing a returned seismic signal is investigated here. Analysis proceeds with methods taken from the theory of inverse problems. Seismic ...
  • Botha, A.E. (OpenJournals Publishing, 2009-07)
    A new and very general method was developed for calculating the charge and spin-resolved electron tunnelling in type-II heterojunctions. Starting from a multiband k.p description of the bulk energy-band structure, a multiband ...
  • Cilliers, Johanna Albertha (1999-11)
    Although the merits of practical work in physics are often questioned, it remains part of physics curricula world-wide. In distance education the incorporation of practical work into the curriculum is considerably ...
  • Grobler, Jonathan (2009-11)
    The double hypernuclear systems are studied within the context of the hyperspherical approach. Possible bound states of these systems are sought as zeros of the corresponding three-body Jost function in the complex ...
  • Joseph, Sithole Makgamathe (2009-08-25)
    This work is aimed at the understanding of the dynamical behavior of hydrogen in diamond. The investigation was carried out using Transverse Field muon Spin Rotation (TF-SR) and the Longitudinal Field muon Spin Relaxation ...
  • De Witt, Aletha (2009-08-25)
    1720 MHz OH masers have been detected towards a number of supernova remnants (SNRs) at the shock interface where the SNR slams into the interstellar medium. Models indicate that these masers are shock excited and can only ...
  • Masita, Dithlase Frans (2006-11-30)
    Bound state systems consisting of three nonrelativistic particles are numerically studied. Calculations are performed employing two-body and three-body forces as input in the Hamiltonian in order to study the role or ...
  • Mabuza, Boy Raymond (2009-08-25)
    We are concerned with the quantum inverse scattering problem. The corresponding Marchenko integral equation is solved by using the collocation method together with piece-wise polynomials, namely, Hermite splines. The ...
  • De Villiers, Jean Schepers (2009-08-25)
    The long-standing problem of possible formation of metastable states in collisions of the eta-meson with atomic nuclei is revisited. The two-body eta-nucleon interaction is described by a local potential, which is ...
