This thesis discusses the investigation of the two-dimensional S = œ Heisenberg antiferromagnet copper formate tetrahydrate (CFTH) and the layered triangular lattice material NaTi02 which was thought to be a candidate for the possession of a non-classical antiferromagnetic ground state due to the frustration inherent in a triangular antiferromagnet.
Single crystals of CFTH are investigated using elastic, quasielastic and inel ... [truncated at 450 characters in length]

|Abstract||This Thesis describes the synthesis and characterisation of titanium imido compounds supported by pendant arm functionalised amidinate ligands. Reactivity studies of cyclopentadienyl amidinate-imido compounds with CO2 are presented. Chapter 1 introduces transition metal imido chemistry, with a particular emphasis on imido complexes of titanium. Chapter 2 describes recent developments in the chemistry of functionalised amidinate ligands. The synt ... [truncated at 450 characters in length]|
