  • Photocatalytic applications in organic synthesis 

    Linklater, Paul Thomas (The Robert Gordon University School of Engineering, 2008-09)
    As the search for new pharmaceuticals continues our understanding of their operation grows. A result of this is that design of new drugs is more often being limited only by the ability of synthesis techniques to produce ...
