Advances in rapid compression machine studies of low- and intermediate-temperature autoignition phenomena
Rapid compression machines (RCMs) are widely used to acquire experimental insights into fuel autoignition and pollutant formation chemistry, especially at conditions relevant to current and future combustion technologies. ...
Synthesis of benzoylated beta-D-glucosamine derivatives
(CRC Press / Taylor and Francis Group, 2017-09-19)

A kinetic modelling study of alcohols operating regimes in a HCCI engine
(SAE International, 2017-09-04)
Pursuing a sustainable energy scenario for transportation requires the blending of renewable oxygenated fuels such as alcohols into commercial hydrocarbon fuels. From a chemical kinetic perspective, this requires the ...
Electro-mechanical response of a 3D nerve bundle model to mechanical loads leading to axonal injury
Traumatic brain injuries and damage are major causes of death and disability. We propose a 3D fully coupled electro-mechanical model of a nerve bundle to investigate the electrophysiological impairments due to trauma at ...
An experimental and modeling study of the ignition of dimethyl carbonate in shock tubes and rapid compression machine
Ignition delay times of dimethyl carbonate DMC were measured using low- and high-pressure shock tubes and in a rapid compression machine (RCM). In this way, the effect of fuel concentration (0.75% and 1.75%), pressure (2.0, ...
Tectonic structure and permeability in the Taupô Rift: new insights from analysis of LiDAR derived dems
(New Zealand Geothermal Workshop, 2017-11-22)
The location of permeable zones, and preliminary quantification of a geothermal well’s production or injection capacity are routinely interpreted from well pressure, temperature, and flow measurements made at ...
The in vivo potential-regulated protective protein of nitrogenase in azotobacter vinelandii supports aerobic bioelectrochemical dinitrogen reduction in vitro
(American Chemical Society, 2017-06-08)
Nitrogenase, the only enzyme known to be able to reduce dinitrogen (N-2) to ammonia (NH3), is irreversibly damaged upon exposure to molecular oxygen (O-2). Several microbes, however, are able to grow aerobically and ...
Bioelectrochemical Haber-Bosch process: An ammonia-producing H-2/N-2 fuel cell
Nitrogenases are the only enzymes known to reduce molecular nitrogen (N-2) to ammonia (NH3). By using methyl viologen (N, N'-dimethyl-4,4'-bipyridinium) to shuttle electrons to nitrogenase, N-2 reduction to NH3 can be ...
Discussion between a reservoir engineer and a geologist: permeability identification from completion test data and borehole image logs integration
(39th New Zealand Geothermal Workshop, 2017-11-22)
The location of permeable zones, and preliminary quantification of a geothermal well’s production or injection capacity are routinely interpreted from well pressure, temperature, and flow measurements made at different ...
Calibration, standardization, and quantitative analysis of multidimensional fluorescence (MDF) measurements on complex mixtures (IUPAC Technical Report)
(De Gruyter, 2017-11-15)
This IUPAC Technical Report describes and compares the currently applied methods for the calibration and standardization of multi-dimensional fluorescence (MDF) spectroscopy data as well as recommendations on the correct ...
