Chemistry @ESF: Dissertations & Theses

Dissertations & Theses Online

Moon Library at ESF has print copies of all Dissertations (Ph.D. level) and Theses (Master's and Undergraduate Honor's) completed at SUNY-ESF through 2015.  These items can be checked out of the library.

Most theses and dissertations from the 1980s to 2017 can also be found in the ProQuest Dissertations & Theses at SUNY-ESF database. Beginning in 2018, all new theses and dissertations are available in Digital Commons @ ESF.

Some FCH Titles

Here are just a few of the theses and dissertations that have been written by FCH students in the past years. Title and author are given, along with the call number that can be used to look on the shelves in the Theses section (stacks 19-20) in Moon Library. You can check the availablility of these titles by doing a catalog search by title or author, or find the full-text for some titles online by searching in the Dissertations & Theses @SUNY-ESF database linked below.

*Please note: Ph.D. dissertations are noted by the lowercase "d" at the end of the call number.
