Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Organic chemistry
  • Oxygen
  • Catalysis

Mineralogy, Coal, Chemical engineering, Supercritical fluid and Thermogravimetric analysis are his primary areas of study. His Mineralogy study incorporates themes from Residence time, Metallurgy, Coalbed methane and Bituminous coal. His work deals with themes such as Fraction, Petrography and Pulp and paper industry, which intersect with Coal.

His study in Chemical engineering is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Mixing and Nanotechnology. His work deals with themes such as Contact time and Materials testing, which intersect with Nanotechnology. He has included themes like Ultimate tensile strength, Composite material, Epoxy, Nanoparticle and Chemical reaction engineering in his Supercritical fluid study.

His most cited work include:

  • Reaction engineering: The supercritical water hydrothermal synthesis of nano-particles (181 citations)
  • Chemical recycling of carbon fibre reinforced composites in nearcritical and supercritical water (179 citations)
  • Continuous hydrothermal synthesis of inorganicmaterials in a near-critical water flow reactor; the one-step synthesisof nano-particulate Ce1 − xZrxO2(x = 0–1)solid solutions (177 citations)

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

Edward Lester mostly deals with Coal, Chemical engineering, Mineralogy, Supercritical fluid and Combustion. His studies examine the connections between Coal and genetics, as well as such issues in Metallurgy, with regards to Particle size. His Chemical engineering study combines topics in areas such as Specific surface area and Adsorption.

His Mineralogy study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Residence time, Repeatability, Image and Fraction. His Supercritical fluid research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Nanotechnology, Composite material, Mixing, Catalysis and Aqueous solution. His Combustion research focuses on Waste management and how it connects with Pulp and paper industry.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Coal (27.54%)
  • Chemical engineering (28.02%)
  • Mineralogy (18.84%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Chemical engineering (28.02%)
  • Coal (27.54%)
  • Pyrolysis (9.66%)

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

Edward Lester spends much of his time researching Chemical engineering, Coal, Pyrolysis, Combustion and Char. His studies in Chemical engineering integrate themes in fields like Porosity, Methanol, BET theory, Adsorption and Specific surface area. His Coal research incorporates themes from Petrography, Metallurgy and Reflectivity.

Edward Lester interconnects Graphene, Exfoliation joint, Carbon and Pulp and paper industry in the investigation of issues within Pyrolysis. His studies deal with areas such as Composition, Thermal, Ignition system, Thermogravimetric analysis and Repeatability as well as Combustion. His research in Char intersects with topics in Muffle furnace, Hemicellulose, Mineralogy and Morphology.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The First 75 Days of Novel Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) Outbreak: Recent Advances, Prevention, and Treatment (90 citations)
  • High efficiency synthesis of HKUST-1 under mild conditions with high BET surface area and CO2 uptake capacity (23 citations)
  • Optimized synthesis of nano-scale high quality HKUST-1 under mild conditions and its application in CO2 capture (20 citations)

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

  • Organic chemistry
  • Oxygen
  • Catalysis

His primary scientific interests are in Chemical engineering, Coal, Combustion, Char and Pyrolysis. The Chemical engineering study combines topics in areas such as Yield, Porosity, Methanol, Adsorption and Specific surface area. His Coal research incorporates elements of Coke, Raw material and Thermal.

His work on Biomass combustion as part of general Combustion study is frequently connected to Kinetic energy, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. In his study, Straw, Thermogravimetric analysis, Miscanthus, Hemicellulose and Cellulose is inextricably linked to Muffle furnace, which falls within the broad field of Char. His Pyrolysis research integrates issues from Lignocellulosic biomass, Syngas, Dehydrogenation and Activated carbon.
