IR studies of pyroelectric Langmuir-Blodgett films (1987)
Journal Article
Barton, J. W., Ratcliffe, N. M., Roberts, G. G., Petty, M. C., Jones, C. A., Jones, C., …Barton, J. (1987). IR studies of pyroelectric Langmuir-Blodgett films. Thin Solid Films, 155(2), 187-195. https://doi.org/10.1016/0040-6090%2887%2990064-2

Alternate-layer Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) assemblies, consisting of 22-tricosenoic acid with three different amine derivatives, have been fabricated. The pyroelectric activity in the films has been assessed and correlated with their structures determine... Read More about IR studies of pyroelectric Langmuir-Blodgett films.

Education on drugs and alcohol: Past disappointments and future challenges (1987)
Journal Article
Plant, M. A., Bagnall, G., Bagnall, G. M., & Plant, M. (1987). Education on drugs and alcohol: Past disappointments and future challenges. Health Education Research, 2(4), 417-422. https://doi.org/10.1093/her/2.4.417

A review is presented of the effectiveness of alcohol and drug education. It is concluded that, contrary to popular belief, there is little evidence that such education is 'effective' in curbing 'problematic' or illegal behaviour and that in some con...

Between 1980 and 1983 a prospective study of 1008 pregnant women was conducted in South East Scotland, to investigate whether or not maternal alcohol consumption during pregnancy was associated with birth abnormalities. The initial results indicated... Read More about Family alcohol problems among pregnant women: Links with maternal substance use and birth abnormalities.

Pyroelectric behaviour of Langmuir-Blodgett films containing polar chromophores (1987)
Journal Article
Daniel, M. F., Roser, S. J., Ratcliffe, N., Smith, G. W., Smith, G., Ratcliffe, N. M., …Daniel, M. (1987). Pyroelectric behaviour of Langmuir-Blodgett films containing polar chromophores. Thin Solid Films, 151(1), 9-15. https://doi.org/10.1016/0040-6090%2887%2990003-4

The pyroelectric behaviour of Langmuir-Blodgett films containing several different polar chromophores was studied. Two distinct levels of activity are seen. By comparison with films containing no chromophores it is shown that the lower level of activ... Read More about Pyroelectric behaviour of Langmuir-Blodgett films containing polar chromophores.

Older People in British Housing Studies: Rediscovery and Emerging Issues for Research (1987)
Journal Article
Means, R. (1987). Older People in British Housing Studies: Rediscovery and Emerging Issues for Research. Housing Studies, 2(2), 82-98. https://doi.org/10.1080/02673038708720591

This paper refers to an increased interest in older people in British housing research and literature. It explains the factors behind this increased interest and illustrates why a gerontological perspective in housing studies is needed. Reference is...

Langmuir blodgett films (1987)
Patent
Smith, G., Daniel, M., Barton, J., & Ratcliffe, N. M. (1987). Langmuir blodgett films. WO/1987/000347

Novel Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) films of ABAB structure in which the compounds A and B are different and contain complementary groups which result in non-centrosymmetry of the layer plane. Three types of structure are described (i) in which A and B have... Read More about Langmuir blodgett films.

Looks at the supposed success story of Bristol, which is popularly seen as having made a successful accommodation the social and economic changes of the past decade, and of the M4 Corridor of which Bristol is the W extreme. Public investment has play... Read More about High technology industry, regional development and defence manufacturing: a case study in the UK Sunbelt..
