Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Botany
  • Statistics
  • Enzyme

His primary areas of study are Botany, Horticulture, Analytical chemistry, Jonagold and Computational fluid dynamics. Bart Nicolai has included themes like Browning, Controlled atmosphere, Carbon dioxide and Oxygen in his Botany study. As a member of one scientific family, Bart Nicolai mostly works in the field of Horticulture, focusing on Shelf life and, on occasion, Aroma.

His Analytical chemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Soluble solids, Principal component analysis, Remote sensing and Near-infrared spectroscopy. His work carried out in the field of Computational fluid dynamics brings together such families of science as Turbulence, Airflow and Process engineering. Bart Nicolai has researched Postharvest in several fields, including Ripening and Food science.

His most cited work include:

  • Nondestructive measurement of fruit and vegetable quality by means of NIR spectroscopy: A review (1307 citations)
  • NIR spectroscopy applications for internal and external quality analysis of citrus fruit - A review (246 citations)
  • NON-DESTRUCTIVE MEASUREMENT OF ACIDITY, SOLUBLE SOLIDS, AND FIRMNESS OF JONAGOLD APPLES USING NIR-SPECTROSCOPY (237 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Horticulture, Botany, Postharvest, Computational fluid dynamics and Analytical chemistry. His work in Horticulture is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses Shelf life. His PEAR and Malus investigations are all subjects of Botany research.

Bart Nicolai specializes in PEAR, namely Pyrus communis. His Computational fluid dynamics study combines topics in areas such as Marine engineering, Airflow and Meteorology. His Controlled atmosphere research focuses on Respiration and how it connects with Oxygen and Carbon dioxide.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Horticulture (16.94%)
  • Botany (12.89%)
  • Postharvest (9.67%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Horticulture (16.94%)
  • Postharvest (9.67%)
  • Composite material (3.85%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Horticulture, Postharvest, Composite material, Controlled atmosphere and Ripening. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Quality and 1-Methylcyclopropene. The various areas that he examines in his Controlled atmosphere study include Fermentation, Browning, Respiratory quotient and Respiration rate.

His research integrates issues of Receptor, Biochemistry and Jonagold in his study of Ripening. As a member of one scientific family, Bart Nicolai mostly works in the field of Porosity, focusing on X-ray and, on occasion, Soil science. His research investigates the connection between Soil science and topics such as PEAR that intersect with issues in Respiration.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Hyperspectral imaging with multivariate analysis for technological parameters prediction and classification of muscle foods: A review. (53 citations)
  • Pectin based food-ink formulations for 3-D printing of customizable porous food simulants (51 citations)
  • Multivariate calibration of spectroscopic sensors for postharvest quality evaluation: A review (32 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Botany
  • Enzyme
  • Statistics

His main research concerns Postharvest, Botany, Horticulture, Ripening and Food science. His Postharvest study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Quality, Cold chain, Cooling rate and Biochemical engineering. Bart Nicolai performs integrative Botany and Cell leakage research in his work.

His work investigates the relationship between Horticulture and topics such as 1-Methylcyclopropene that intersect with problems in Growing season, Agronomy and Coupled differential equations. The study incorporates disciplines such as Malus and Biochemistry in addition to Ripening. His work in Airflow covers topics such as Sprayer which are related to areas like Computational fluid dynamics.
