Cornell Theses and Dissertations
The theses and dissertations of graduate students at Cornell University have been deposited in Cornell's institutional repository (eCommons) since about 2004. This collection also includes a few earlier Cornell theses.
Students retain ownership of the copyright of their work. Students also have the option of imposing a temporary embargo on access to the full text of their theses. This embargo may last from one to five years. If access to a thesis is restricted, the metadata record for the thesis is still visible, but you will see "Access to Document Restricted" under the document thumbnail image. Below this will be a field labeled "No Access Until," which indicates the date when the full text of the thesis will be accessible.
More information about Cornell theses and dissertations is available here:
In general, older theses and dissertations from Cornell University are not currently available as digital files in eCommons. The Library is willing to digitize and make available older Cornell theses on a cost recovery basis. If you are interested in this service, please contact email@example.com.
Polymer electrolytes for safer lithium-based batteries: synthesis, characterization, and structure-function correlation (2014-08)Rechargeable Li-metal batteries (LMBs) are conceivably one of the most promising battery technologies to achieve high energy densities for sustainable transport applications and grid-storage components. Electrolytes are a ...
Exploring the technical & economic benefits of integrating thermal energy storage into the power system (2014-08)In recent years, electricity system operators have recognized the important role that demand-side resources can play in energy and ancillary services markets. As demand-side agents enter these markets, there is growing ...
Controlling accessibility of tastant to receptors via binding to a carrier protein: Moderating the taste of rebaudioside A (2015-05)Intake of added sugars exceeds discretionary dietary allowances, regardless of energy needs of the US population and often leads to adverse health conditions. Half of the added sugars consumed in the United States are in ...
A positive feedback regulatory loop, SA-AtNAP-SAG202/SARD1-ICS1-SA, regulates salicylic acid biosynthesis and leaf senescence in Arabidopsis (2014-08)Salicylic acid (SA) is an important plant hormone that plays critical roles in plant defense and leaf senescence. SARD1, a transcription factor (TF), directly regulates isochorismate synthase 1 (ICS1) and SA biosynthesis ...
(2014-08)Greener approaches for hydrophobic treatment of cotton fabric were studied. In the first method, fatty acid was grafted onto cotton (cellulose) fiber surface to decrease the surface energy. Acetic anhydride was used to ...
