Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Enzyme
  • Biochemistry

Biochemistry, Bacteria, Microbiology, Propionate and Methanogenesis are his primary areas of study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Syntrophy and Stereochemistry in addition to Biochemistry. All of his Bacteria and Archaea, Microorganism, Sulfate-reducing bacteria, 16S ribosomal RNA and Thermophile investigations are sub-components of the entire Bacteria study.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Food science, Reductive dechlorination, Firmicutes, Enrichment culture and Bacteroidetes in addition to Microbiology. His Propionate research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Pelotomaculum, Formate, Butyrate, Bioreactor and Mesophile. As part of the same scientific family, Alfons J. M. Stams usually focuses on Methanogenesis, concentrating on Environmental chemistry and intersecting with Sulfate, Electron acceptor and Carboxydothermus hydrogenoformans.

His most cited work include:

  • The ecology and biotechnology of sulphate-reducing bacteria (1180 citations)
  • Electron transfer in syntrophic communities of anaerobic bacteria and archaea (753 citations)
  • Utilisation of biomass for the supply of energy carriers (482 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Alfons J. M. Stams spends much of his time researching Biochemistry, Bacteria, Environmental chemistry, Microbiology and Methanogenesis. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Strain and Biochemistry. His Bacteria study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Food science and Bioreactor.

The various areas that Alfons J. M. Stams examines in his Environmental chemistry study include Bioremediation, Microorganism, Sulfide, Sulfate and Electron acceptor. The Microbiology study combines topics in areas such as Desulfotomaculum and Enrichment culture. His Methanogenesis research incorporates themes from Methanol, Mesophile and Anaerobic digestion.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Biochemistry (48.84%)
  • Bacteria (40.03%)
  • Environmental chemistry (26.08%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Biochemistry (48.84%)
  • Bacteria (40.03%)
  • Environmental chemistry (26.08%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His scientific interests lie mostly in Biochemistry, Bacteria, Environmental chemistry, Microorganism and Food science. His studies in Biochemistry integrate themes in fields like Chlorate, Syntrophy and Strain. His Bacteria study incorporates themes from Thiosulfate, Fermentation, Formate, Microbiology and Bioreactor.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Carbon fixation and Propionate. His Environmental chemistry research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Sulfide, Methanogenesis, Methane and Sulfate-reducing bacteria, Sulfate. His studies examine the connections between Microorganism and genetics, as well as such issues in Microbial metabolism, with regards to Organic chemistry.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Sulfate reduction at low pH to remediate acid mine drainage. (185 citations)
  • Chain elongation in anaerobic reactor microbiomes to recover resources from waste. (174 citations)
  • Chain elongation in anaerobic reactor microbiomes to recover resources from waste. (174 citations)
