well guys according to gmaxonline, "none of" is always singular. Gmaxonline also says that only the following words will depend on the noun that will come after the preposition:

a) some of
b) any of
c) most of
d) all of

Hope this helps

the stuff you posted above are singular or plural depeding on the context or the noun following them.

some of the students are
some of the rice is

any of the tables
have no example for singular

most of the guys are
most of the milk has come from ...

all of the clubbers are
all of the money is stolen

none only refers to a single item

Whenever you see none substitute "not one", and see what sounds better very academic I know
