Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Organic chemistry
  • Sewage treatment
  • Biochemistry

His primary scientific interests are in Chromatography, Anaerobic digestion, Environmental chemistry, Wastewater and Galaxolide. His studies in Chromatography integrate themes in fields like Activated sludge and Mesophile. His Activated sludge research includes elements of Biodegradation and Hydraulic retention time.

The concepts of his Environmental chemistry study are interwoven with issues in Methanogenesis and Sewage. His work deals with themes such as Flocculation, Effluent and Bioreactor, which intersect with Wastewater. Many of his studies involve connections with topics such as Sewage treatment and Galaxolide.

His most cited work include:

  • Behavior of pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and hormones in a sewage treatment plant (1144 citations)
  • Removal of Pharmaceutical and Personal Care Products (PPCPs) under nitrifying and denitrifying conditions (314 citations)
  • How are pharmaceutical and personal care products (PPCPs) removed from urban wastewaters (289 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Environmental chemistry, Sewage treatment, Effluent, Chromatography and Bioreactor. His research in Environmental chemistry intersects with topics in Ammonium, Nitrite, Biodegradation and Sorption. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Wastewater, Galaxolide and Sewage.

His Effluent research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Chemical oxygen demand, Anaerobic filter, Anaerobic digestion and Biofilter, Pulp and paper industry. The Partition coefficient research Francisco Omil does as part of his general Chromatography study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Naproxen and Roxithromycin, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. Francisco Omil works mostly in the field of Bioreactor, limiting it down to topics relating to Sulfate-reducing bacteria and, in certain cases, Propionate and Microbiology, as a part of the same area of interest.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental chemistry (31.68%)
  • Sewage treatment (29.70%)
  • Effluent (28.71%)

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

  • Environmental chemistry (31.68%)
  • Sewage treatment (29.70%)
  • Effluent (28.71%)

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

Francisco Omil mostly deals with Environmental chemistry, Sewage treatment, Effluent, Wastewater and Biomass. His research integrates issues of Nitrite, Ammonium and Bioreactor in his study of Environmental chemistry. Many of his research projects under Sewage treatment are closely connected to Uv treatment with Uv treatment, tying the diverse disciplines of science together.

His study in Effluent is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Activated carbon, Adsorption, Chromatography and Water matrix. In his study, Ammonia is inextricably linked to Water treatment, which falls within the broad field of Wastewater. Francisco Omil has researched Waste management in several fields, including Nutrient and Environmental engineering.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Understanding the removal mechanisms of PPCPs and the influence of main technological parameters in anaerobic UASB and aerobic CAS reactors. (136 citations)
  • Understanding the sorption and biotransformation of organic micropollutants in innovative biological wastewater treatment technologies. (73 citations)
  • Biotransformation of pharmaceuticals under nitrification, nitratation and heterotrophic conditions (66 citations)

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

  • Organic chemistry
  • Biochemistry
  • Redox

Francisco Omil mainly investigates Environmental chemistry, Biodegradation, Biotransformation, Nitrification and Bioreactor. He has included themes like Chromatography and Effluent, Environmental impact of pharmaceuticals and personal care products in his Environmental chemistry study. His Biodegradation study incorporates themes from Nitrite and Activated sludge.

His work focuses on many connections between Nitrification and other disciplines, such as Hydraulic retention time, that overlap with his field of interest in Pulp and paper industry. His Sewage treatment research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Ammonia monooxygenase and Microbiology. His Adsorption research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Galaxolide, Redox and Ammonium.
