2 PREFACE This dissertation was produced in accordance with guidelines which permit the inclusion as part of the dissertation the text of an original paper, or papers, submitted for publication. The dissertation must still conform to all other requirements explained in the “Guide for Preparation of Master’s Theses, Doctoral Dissertations, and Doctor of Chemistry Practica Reports at The University of Texas at Dallas.” It must include a comprehensive abstract, a full introduction and literature review, and a final overall conclusion. Additional material (procedural and design data as well as descriptions of equipment) must be provided in sufficient detail to allow a clear and precise judgement to be made of the importance and originality of the research reported. It is acceptable for this dissertation to include as chapters authentic copies of papers already published, provided these meet type size, margin, and legibility requirements. In such cases, connecting texts which provide logical bridges between different manuscripts are mandatory. Where the student is not the sole author of a manuscript, the student is required to make an explicit statement in the introductory material to that manuscript describing the student’s contribution to the work and acknowledging the contribution of the other author(s). The signatures of the Supervising Committee which precede all other material in the dissertation attest to the accuracy of this statement.
