In March 1976, the first in a series of intensive field studies was carried out in the Alberta Oil Sands Environmental Research Program study area in northeastern Alberta to examine the fine structure of the atmosphere and dispersion characteristics under winter conditions. The study comprised...
In the summers of 1975, 1976, and 1977, several field investigations were carried out to determine the amounts of sulphur deposited in rain, in rain washing off trees, and by direct absorption of so2 by soil. The impact of this sulphur deposition on soils in the AOSERP study area was also...
Differences in the composition of soils under open and canopy conditions at two sites close-in to the great Canadian oil sands operation, Fort McMurray, AlbertaDownload
Soils sampled at Sites 1 and 2, 2.3 and 5.3 km south of the Great Canadian Oil Sands (GCOS) plant, Fort McMurray, respectively were found to differ statistically with reference to several macronutrients. Soils under cover of a canopy and those in open areas differed considerably with respect to...
The research presented in this thesis details the synthesis of transition metal hydride complexes, with the focus on utilising these complexes for (a) the dehydrocoupling of amine-borane adducts, and (b) the hydrosilylation and hydroboration of unsaturated organic moieties. In both instances,...
The chemical characteristics of snow in the Oil Sands area of northeastern Alberta have been monitored periodically since 1976. The accumulation of pollutants in the snowpack can be an effective indicator of total winter deposition as the snowpack preserves a continuous record of materials...
Investigation of the Synthesis, Reactivity and Biological Properties of Various 6-Substituted D-Fructose DerivativesDownload
The detection of small tumors growing in complex organs, including breast tissue, is a challenge in modern medical imaging. The use of positron emission tomography (PET) and tracer molecules containing radionuclei such as 18F have been of significant value to detect small tumors. The commonly...
Soils of permanent sample plots were investigated to provide baseline data for research related to monitoring of terrestrial ecosystems. More specifically, the objective of this project was to provide information on the kinds, characteristics, and distribution of soils in 16 permanent sample...
The Design, Synthesis and Evaluation of Multivalent Heterobifunctional Ligands Specific for Shiga Toxin 1 and Shiga Toxin 2Download
Hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) is a potential life-threatening condition caused by infection with Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli O157:H7. There are two major types of Shiga toxins, namely, Shiga toxin 1 (Stx1) and Shiga toxin 2 (Stx2), of which, Stx2 is clinically most closely associated...
The study of heterobimetallic complexes (having two different metal atoms) involves combining the unique properties of each metal, which can give rise to interesting contrasts in reactivity compared to either metal alone. With two different metals incorporated into one complex, a more diverse...
