  1. Synthesis and structure-activity studies of skeletally modified estradiol analogues
    De Koning, Pieter David, 2017-01-25T14:40:22Z, University of Cape Town
    In the first phase of this investigation, synthetic approaches to skeletally modified variants of 14,17α-ethanoestra-l,3,5(10)-triene-3,17β-diol were examined, with the purpose of determining the influence of configurational inversion at C-8, C-9 or C-13 upon the high oral estrogenicity associate ...
  2. Response of kikuyu grass (Pennisetum clandestinum) to irrigation with saline, sodic wastes and nitrogenous, manganiferous effluent
    Mills, Anthony, 2017-01-25T14:28:21Z, University of Cape Town
    The Manganese Metal Company (MMC) situated in Nelspruit, Eastern Transvaal, South Africa produces a manganiferous saline effluent from a manganese ore leaching process. The high NH₄ content of the waste has been identified as a possible nitrogen fertilizer source. Irrigation of the MMC waste over ne ...
  3. Studies in capture-recapture analysis
    Darroch, John Newton, 2017-01-25T14:28:49Z, University of Cape Town
  4. The megacryst suite from the Schuller kimberlite, South Africa
    de Bruin, Deon, 2017-01-25T14:31:43Z, University of Cape Town
  5. The generalized partial correlation matrix
    Juritz, June Mary, 2017-01-25T14:37:29Z, University of Cape Town
  6. The associations between plasma homocysteine, vitamin B12, folate, the Apolipoprotein E genotype and Alzheimer"s Disease
    Mohamed, Ilhaam, 2017-01-25T14:12:58Z, University of Cape Town
    Background: Alzheimer"s disease (AD), the commonest form of dementia, affects people in both industrialised and developing countries. Risk factors for the development of AD include age, the presence of the Apolipoprotein ε4 allele, low vitamin B₁₂ and folate levels, and elevated plasma homocysteine ...
  7. Identifying the major constraints to investment in residential rental property in South Africa
    Frew, Marc Alexander, 2017-01-25T13:18:54Z, University of Cape Town
    Purpose: This research investigated the constraints to investment in residential rental property in South Africa. This research does not attempt to value or place these constraints in any hierarchical order; rather, it identifies the constraints in the South African context for research in the futur ...
  8. An analysis of diversification by location in the South African property market
    Shisana, Fumani, 2017-01-25T13:19:05Z, University of Cape Town
    The purpose of this dissertation is to investigate whether a property investor could diversify their portfolio by investing in the same property class and type throughout three different cities in South Africa. Furthermore, the study aimed to achieve this by providing an in-depth analysis of propert ...
  9. Integration and testing of a digital transceiver for a dual frequency, pulse-doppler radar
    Du Plessis, Dane, 2017-01-25T13:19:36Z, University of Cape Town
    This dissertation focuses on the development of a digital transceiver system for a dual-band, polarimetric radar, which is to form part of the NeXtRAD multistatic radar. NeXtRAD is being developed as an instrument for research into the behaviour of clutter and targets as observed by multistatic rada ...
  10. The impact of unwashed aggregate on water quality emanating from permeable pavements
    Biggs, Benjamin, 2017-01-25T13:20:18Z, University of Cape Town
    Sustainable Drainage System (SuDS) technologies set out to mitigate the adverse effects of urban stormwater runoff, through a multi-objective approach. Permeable pavement systems (PPSs) are one of the most widely-adopted SuDS technologies in South Africa. South Africa is a water scarce country and t ...
