    Raw poultry manure (RPM) and its derived biochars at temperatures of 400 (B400) and 600 C (B600) were physico-chemically characterized, and their ability to release nutrients was assessed under static conditions. The ...
  • Li, Y.; Joseph, S.; Colin, S.; Baldas, L.; Barrot, C.; Orieux, S.; Newport, David; Brandner, Jürgen J. (IOP Publishing, 2012)
    The study of gas flows in microchannels has received considerably more attention in the literature from a simulation perspective than an experimental. The majority of the experimental work has emphasis on the global ...
  • Hudson, Sarah P.; Tanner, David A.; Redington, Wynette; Magner, Edmond; Hodnett, Benjamin K.; Nakahara, Shohei (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 ...
  • Xiao, Xinxin; Magner, Edmond (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2018)
    A quasi-solid-state and flexible biofuel cell using a hydrogel electrolyte preloaded with sugar as a fuel is described. The device can function as a self-powered biosupercapacitor delivering pulses for over 600 cycles, ...
  • Hayes, Kevin; Noor, Mohamed R.; Djeghader, Ahmed; Armshaw, Patricia; Pembroke, Tony J.; Tofail, Syed A.M.; Soulimane, Tewfik (Nature Publishing Group, 2018)
    Aldehyde dehydrogenases (ALDH) form a superfamily of dimeric or tetrameric enzymes that catalyze the oxidation of a broad range of aldehydes into their corresponding carboxylic acids with the concomitant reduction of the ...
  • Dolan, G.P.; Flynn, Robert, Joseph; Tanner, David 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, David 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 ...
  • Guerin, Sarah; O'Donnell, Joseph; Haq, Ehtsham U.; McKeown, Cian; Silien, Christophe; Rhen, Fernando M.F.; Soulimane, Tewfik; Tofail, Syed A.M.; Thompson, Damien (American Physical Society, 2019)
    Single crystal L-amino acids can exhibit technologically useful piezoelectric and nonlinear optical properties. Here we predict, using density functional theory, the piezoelectric charge and strain and voltage tensors of ...
  • Ron, Dorit; 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 ...
  • Kiely, Maeve; Adams, David R.; Hayes, Sheri L.; O'Connor, Rosemary; Baillie, George S.; Kiely, Patrick A. (Elsevier, 2017)
    Conflicting reports implicate the scaffolding protein RACK1 in the progression of breast cancer. RACK1 has been identified as a key regulator downstream of growth factor and adhesion signalling and as a direct binding ...
  • Adams, David R.; Ron, Dorit; Kiely, Patrick A. (BioMed Central, 2011)
    The Receptor for Activated C Kinase 1 (RACK1) is a member of the tryptophan-aspartate repeat (WD-repeat) family of proteins and shares significant homology to the β subunit of G-proteins (Gβ). RACK1 adopts a seven-bladed ...
  • Cummins, Niamh M.; Day, J.C.C.; Wren, A.W.; Carroll, P.; Murphy, N.; Jakeman, Philip 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 ...
  • Heffernan, Maria M.; O'Reilly, Emmet J. (Elsevier, 2019)
    As part of ongoing efforts to develop electroactive polymers (EAPs) which are biodegradable/bioresorbable, we report on the microwave assisted synthesis and characterization of an electrically conducting and electroactive ...
