Structural Studies of Prostratin and of Oxalate Bridging

by McCormick, Ross

Abstract (Summary)
This thesis is presented in three parts. The first is concerned with the solution and attempted refinement of the structure of prostratin, a toxic anti-tumour chemical extracted from the New Zealand tree pimelia prostrata. The second is concerned with the analysis of the structures of three inorganic compounds of current interest. These are; 1. bisethylenediaminenickel(II) hemioxalate nitrate 2. dipropylenetriaminezinc(II) hemioxalate perchlorate 3. diethylenetriaminecopper(II) hemioxalate perchlorate. The last section deals with the theory and programming of five of the more important computer programs developed during the course of the work.
