This thesis concerns the representation theory of diagram algebras and related problems. In particular, we consider subalgebras and generalisations of the partition algebra. We study the d-tonal partition algebra and the planar d-tonal partition algebra. Regarding the d-tonal partition algebra, a complete description of the J -classes of the underlying monoid of this algebra is obtained. Furthermore, the structure of the poset of J -classes of the d-tonal partition monoid is also studied and numerous combinatorial results are presented. We observe a connection between canonical elements of the d-tonal partition monoids and some combinatorial objects which describe certain types of hydrocarbons, by using the alcove system of some reflection groups. We show that the planar d-tonal partition algebra is quasi-hereditary and generically semisimple. The standard modules of the planar d-tonal partition algebra are explicitly constructed, and the restriction rules for the standard modules are also given. The planar 2-tonal partition algebra is closely related to the two coloured Fuss-Catalan algebra. We use this relation to transfer information from one side to the other. For example, we obtain a presentation of the 2-tonal partition algebra by generators and relations. Furthermore, we present a necessary and sufficient condition for semisimplicity of the two colour Fuss-Catalan algebra, under certain known restrictions.
