  • Kuhs, Manuel; Zeglinski, Jacek; Rasmuson, Åke C (American Chemical Society, 2014)
    Nearly 1800 induction time experiments have been performed on crystal nucleation of fenoxycarb in isopropanol to investigate the influence of solution pretreatment. For each preheating temperature and preheating time, ...
  • Kuhs, Manuel; Svard, Michael; Rasmuson, Åke C (Elsevier, 2013)
    The solubility of fenoxycarb has been determined between 278 and 318 K in several organic solvents. The solid phase at equilibrium and some indication of polymorphism has been properly examined by powder XRD, DSC, Raman ...
  • Liu, Yichen (University of Limerick, 2014)
    The project carried out in the past four years has focused on the area of biomass pyrolysis for the production of bio-oil, and the upgrading of bio-oil. In the beginning of the work, mixed metal oxide catalysts – sulfated/ ...
  • Collins, Matthew; O'Regan, Bernadette; Cosgrove, Tom (World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology, 2015)
    To determine the potential of a low cost Irish engineered timber product to replace high cost solid timber for use in bending active structures such as gridshells a single Irish engineered timber product in the form of ...
  • Connolly, Michael (University of Limerick, 2014)
    The undertaken project is a case study, focusing primarily on the energy efficiency improvement of an industrial partner in the food processing industry through the recovery of low grade waste heat. An analysis of the ...
  • Greene Mooney, Emma Elizabeth (University of Limerick, 2014)
    Reducing industrial low-grade heat generation and waste can lead to improved energy efficiency, decreased environmental emissions, and reduced fuel costs. However, it is an area that is recognised as being underexploited. Many ...
  • Rojas, karla Dussan (University of Limerick, 2014)
    The production of energy and chemicals from renewable resources has gained significant attention as a means to support the transition from fossil fuels towards clean and sustainable technologies. Due to its availability ...
  • Walsh, Conor; Moles, Richard; O'Regan, Bernadette (MDPI, 2010)
    The need for global comparability has led to the recent standardization of ecological footprint methods. The use of global averages and necessary methodological assumptions has questioned the ability of the ecological ...
  • Falk, Magnus; Alcalde, Miguel; Bartlett, Philip N; De Lacey, Antionio L; Gorton, Lo; Gutierrez-Sanchez, Cristina; Haddad, Raoudha; Kilburn, Jeremy; Leech, Dónal; Ludwig, Roland; Magner, Edmond; Mate, Diana M; Ó Conghaile, Peter; Ortiz, Roberto; Pita, Marcos; Pöller, Sascha; Ruzgas, Tautgirdas; Salaj-Kośla, Urszula; Schuhmann, Wolfgang; Sebelius, Frederik; Shao, Minling; Stoica, Leonard; Sygmund, Cristoph; Tilly, Jonas; Toscano, MIguel D; Vivekananthan, Jeevanthi; Wright, Emma; Shleev, Sergey (Public LIbrary of Science, 2014)
    Here for the first time, we detail self-contained (wireless and self-powered) biodevices with wireless signal transmission. Specifically, we demonstrate the operation of self-sustained carbohydrate and oxygen sensitive ...
  • Karpinska, Jolanta; Kuhs, Manuel; Rasmuson, Åke C; Erxleben, Andrea; McArdle, Patrick (International Union of Crystallography, 2012)
    The title compound, C17H19NO4, which is a non-toxic insect growth regulator with the common name fenoxycarb, contains two independent and conformationally different molecules in the asymmetric unit. Although the inter-ring ...
  • Bezuidenhout, Michael; Liu, Pai; Singh, Shalini; Kiely, Maeve; Ryan, Kevin M.; Kiely, Patrick A (Public Library of Science, 2014)
    Group IV Nanowires have strong potential for several biomedical applications. However, to date their use remains limited because many are synthesised using heavy metal seeds and functionalised using organic ligands to make ...
  • Crilly, Suzanne; Magner, Edmond (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2009)
    The E degrees' of cytochrome c on a self-assembled monolayer (SAM) modified gold electrode increased by 300 mV immediately on immersion in methanol; on re-immersion of the electrode in aqueous buffer, the original faradaic ...
  • Guo, Kai; Hu, Yuanyuan; Zhang, Yahong; Liu, Baohong; Magner, Edmond (American Chemical Society, 2010)
    The electrochemical properties of cytochrome c (cyt c) immobilized on multilayer nanozeolite-modified electrodes have been examined in aqueous and nonaqueous solutions. Layers of Linde type-L zeolites were assembled on ...
  • Crilly, Suzanne; Magner, Edmond (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2010)
    Changes in the secondary structure of cytochrome c on immersion in methanol were monitored using circular dichroism. These changes occurred immediately in methanol, upon re-immersion in aqueous buffer, the secondary structure ...
  • O'Reilly, Niall J; Magner, Edmond (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2011)
    The effect of a range of solvents on the catalytic oxidation of methyl phenyl sulfide to methyl phenyl sulfoxide by MP-11 and by a cyclodextrin derivative of MP-11 was examined. The addition of low concentrations of alcohols ...
  • Scanlon, Micheál D; Salaj-Kośla, Urszula; Belochapkine, Serguei; MacAodha, Domhnall; Leech, Dónal; Ding, Yi; Magner, Edmond (American Chemical Society, 2012)
    The high surface areas of nanostructured electrodes can provide for significantly enhanced surface loadings of electroactive materials. The fabrication and characterization of nanoporous gold (np-Au) substrates as electrodes ...
  • Salaj-Kośla, Urszula; Pöller, Sascha; Beyl, Yvonne; Scanlon, Micheál D; Beloshapkin, Sergey; Shleev, Sergey; Schuhmann, Wolfgang; Magner, Edmond (Elsevier, 2012)
    Well defined mediatorless bioelectrocatalytic reduction of oxygen with high current densities of 0.8 mA cm(-2) was obtained on nanoporous gold electrodes modified with Myrothecium verrucaria bilirubin oxidase. A stable ...
  • Medda, Lucca; Salis, Andrea; Magner, Edmond (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2012)
    The range of salts used as supporting electrolytes in electrochemical studies of redox proteins and enzymes varies widely, with the choice of an electrolyte relying on the assumption that the electrolyte used does not ...
  • Astratine, Lavinia; Magner, Edmond; Cassidy, John; Betts, Anthony (Elsevier, 2014)
