The application of the Kelvin probe in materials science. (2000)
Thesis
L√ĄGEL, B. 2000. The application of the Kelvin probe in materials science. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

This thesis reports on the application of the Kelvin probe in materials science and in particular on the study of metal and semiconductor surfaces in both ambient and UHV environments. The concept of the work function φ and its importance as a param... Read More about The application of the Kelvin probe in materials science..

Use of stable isotopes to assess phytoremediation of soils contaminated with cadmium and zinc. (2000)
Thesis
AYOUB, A.S. 2000. Use of stable isotopes to assess phytoremediation of soils contaminated with cadmium and zinc. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Land contaminated with heavy metals such as Cd and Zn can be remediated using a number of different approaches. Many of these strategies are very expensive (e. g. removal and disposal of the soil, covering the soil with uncontaminated soil, extractio...

Development, implementation and evaluation of harm reduction techniques for drug users. (2000)
Thesis
SCOTT, J. 2000. Development, implementation and evaluation of harm reduction techniques for drug users. Robert Gordon University [online], PhD thesis. Available from: https://openair.rgu.ac.uk

Recent strategies within health and social care state policies and interventions should be selected on the basis of evidence available to demonstrate their benefits. The provision of services for drug users is no exception to this. Harm reduction is... Read More about Development, implementation and evaluation of harm reduction techniques for drug users..

The destruction of the cyanobacterial toxin microcystin-LR by semiconductor photocatalysis. (2000)
Thesis
CORNISH, B.J.P.A. 2000. The destruction of the cyanobacterial toxin microcystin-LR by semiconductor photocatalysis. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

In fresh waters where cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) flourish, dense growths known as blooms occur. Such blooms present a threat to human and animal health as many of these cyanobacteria produce toxins. One such group of toxins are the microcystins...
