The characterisation and identification of body fluid proteins for forensic purposes. (2010)
Thesis
VINCINI, L. 2010. The characterisation and identification of body fluid proteins for forensic purposes. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Advances in DNA technology have led to the extremely sensitive and rapid analysis methods used in forensic science. It can often be crucial to a criminal case to unequivocally identify the body fluid source of DNA. This is of particular importance in...

Novel bisnaphthalimidopropyl polyamine derivatives: their mode of action in a breast cancer cell system. (2010)
Thesis
BARRON, G. 2010. Novel bisnaphthalimidopropyl polyamine derivatives: their mode of action in a breast cancer cell system. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

The synthesis and characterisation of novel bisnaphthalimidopropyl polyamine (BNIPP) derivatives, has gained pace over the last couple of years, as they have enhanced aqueous solubility, without loss of biological activity, in contrast to parent bisn...

The use of novel poly(allylamine) based amphiphilic polymers for drug delivery. (2010)
Thesis
HOSKINS, C. 2010. The use of novel poly(allylamine) based amphiphilic polymers for drug delivery. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Fourteen novel comb shaped amphiphilic polymers were successfully synthesised to determine the effect of polymer architecture on the potential of these amphiphilic polymers for hydrophobic drug delivery. Polyallylamine (PAA) was grafted with four dif... Read More about The use of novel poly(allylamine) based amphiphilic polymers for drug delivery..
