  • Hutton, Kieran W; Mitchell, Niall A; Frawley, Patrick (Elsevier, 2012)
    Numerical simulation of typical chemical engineering processes, such as crystallisation, liquid-liquid extraction, milling and other multi-phase operations in which exist discrete and continuous phases are highly computationally ...
  • Hant, Steven M.; Attard, George S.; Riddle, Rodney; Ryan, Kevin M. (American Chemical Society, 2005)
    Highly ordered macroporous mixed metal oxides were prepared with very high mixed metal ratios using an optimized silicon alkoxide prehydrolysis process. The homogenous solutions completely filled the interstitial voids in ...
  • Barrett, Christopher A.; Geaney, Hugh; Gunning, Robert D.; Laffir, Fathima R.; Ryan, Kevin M. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2011)
    High yields of single-crystalline Ge nanowires (NWs) were synthesized through the thermal decomposition of diphenylgermane (DPG) in the vapor phase of a high boiling point organic solvent. The NWs were single crystal and ...
  • Hanrahan, John P.; Copley, Mark P.; Ryan, Kevin M.; Spalding, Trevor R.; Morris, Michael A.; Holmes, Justin D. (American Chemical Society, 2004)
    In this paper we report the controlled expansion of pores within mesoporous silicas using supercritical carbon dioxide (sc-CO2). Our method uses the tunable density of sc-CO2 to induce the controlled swelling of the triblock ...
  • Ooi, S.W; Fourlais, G; Tanner, D.A; Robinson, J.S (Maney Publishing, 2006)
    Two novel ultralow carbon (ULC) steels were investigated, one based on combined vanadium and titanium additions and the second based on titanium only additions. Grain size and mechanical property measurements have been ...
  • Shanley, Daniel K; Kiely, Patrick A; Golla, Kalyan; Allen, Seamus; Martin, Kenneth; O'Riordan, Ronan T; Ball, Melanie; Aplin, John D; Singer, Bernard B; Caplice, Noel; Moran, Niamh; Moore, Tom (Public Library of Science, 2013)
    Pregnancy-specific glycoproteins (PSGs) are immunoglobulin superfamily members encoded by multigene families in rodents and primates. In human pregnancy, PSGs are secreted by the syncytiotrophoblast, a fetal tissue, and ...
  • 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 ...
  • O'Sullivan, Catriona; Crilly, Suzanne; Laffir, Fathima R.; Singh, Ajay; Magner, Edmond; Ryan, Kevin M. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2011)
    A multi component assembly consisting of the redox protein cytochrome c (cyt c) immobilised onto vertically aligned gold tipped semiconductor nanorods is described. Cyt c was 10 successfully immobilised using a thiol linker. ...
  • Hudson, Sarah; Tanner, D.A; Redington, W; Magner, Edmond; Hodnett, Benjamin K; Nakahara, S (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2006)
    TEM analysis of mesoporous materials is generally undertaken to give qualitative results. Accurate quantitative analysis is demonstrated in this study. A systematic image analysis of a powder form of a hexagonal mesoporous ...
  • Dolan, G.P; Flynn, R.J; Tanner, D.A; Robinson, J.S (Maney Publishing, 2005)
    Determination of the time-temperature property C curve for aluminium alloys usually involves a large number of quenches and isothermal holds to calibrate a set of constants that describes the shape of the C curve for a ...
  • Robinson, J.S; Cudd, Richard L; Tanner, D.A; Dolan, G.P (Elsevier, 2001)
    7xxx (Al-Zn-Mg-Cu) alloys develop their strength, through the controlled decomposition (ageing) of a supersaturated solid solution to produce a precipitation hardened microstructure. The supersaturated solid solution is ...
  • Ron, Donit; Adams, David R; Baillie, George S; Long, Aideen; O'Connor, Rosemary; Kiely, Patrick A (BioMed Central, 2013)
    This perspective summarises the first and long overdue RACK1 meeting held at the University of Limerick, Ireland, May 2013, in which RACK1's role in the immune system, the heart and the brain were discussed and its ...
  • Cummins, Niamh M; Day, J.C.C.; Wren, A.W.; Carroll, P; Murphy, N; Jakeman, P.M; Towler, M.R (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2010)
    Raman data from human fingernails has been analysed to determine if a relationship exists between spectral features and bone quality. Previous work demonstrated a relationship between the manually determined intensity of ...
  • Ryan, Liam (University of Limerick, 2013)
    Autotransporters are a family of outer membrane proteins in Gram-negative bacteria. This family of proteins has a conserved architecture consisting of the membrane domain and the extracellular domain which contains the ...
  • Tanner, D.A; Robinson, J.S (Elsevier, 2008)
    Closed die forgings manufactured from 2014 aluminium alloys have been subject to both standard and non-standard heat treatments in order to reduce the as-quenched residual stress magnitudes. Warm water (60 degrees C) and ...
  • Robinson, J.S; Tanner, D.A (Maney Publishing, 2003)
    Residual stresses develop in the aluminium alloy 7010 when the material is quenched from the solution heat treatment temperature. Residual stress measurements have been made using the X-ray diffraction technique and a ...
  • Tanner, D.A; Robinson, J.S (Maney Publishing, 2006)
    The surface and through thickness residual stress magnitudes present in heat treated high strength aluminium alloy components are frequently reported to exceed the uniaxial yield stress of small specimens of the same alloy ...
  • Tanner, D.A; Robinson, J.S (Springer, 2000)
    Precipitation-hardened aluminum alloys gain their high strength through heat treatment involving a severe quenching operation, which can have the adverse effect of introducing residual stresses. The finite element code ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
