Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Organic chemistry
  • Oxygen
  • Carbon dioxide

His primary areas of investigation include Organic matter, Environmental chemistry, Mineralogy, Sediment and Inorganic chemistry. He interconnects Solvent, Nitrogen, Gas chromatography, Phenols and Stripping in the investigation of issues within Organic matter. His study in Environmental chemistry is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Exhaust gas, Phthalic acid, Diesel fuel, Air pollution and Oxalic acid.

His Mineralogy research integrates issues from Sulfate, Petroleum, Sulfur and Natural gas. Isaac R. Kaplan combines subjects such as Seawater and Sulfide with his study of Sulfate. His study on Inorganic chemistry also encompasses disciplines like

  • Kerogen, which have a strong connection to Redox, Hydrogen and Illite,
  • Isotopes of carbon which connect with Meteorite, Total organic carbon, Diagenesis and Murchison meteorite.

His most cited work include:

  • The age curves of sulfur and oxygen isotopes in marine sulfate and their mutual interpretation (1434 citations)
  • The Origin and Distribution of Methane in Marine Sediments (784 citations)
  • Evidence for Extraterrestrial Amino-acids and Hydrocarbons in the Murchison Meteorite (616 citations)

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

Isaac R. Kaplan mainly investigates Environmental chemistry, Organic matter, Mineralogy, Kerogen and Hydrocarbon. The concepts of his Environmental chemistry study are interwoven with issues in Phytol, Organic geochemistry, Benzene, Outfall and Formic acid. The study incorporates disciplines such as Total organic carbon, Isotopes of carbon, Sediment, Geochemistry and Oceanography in addition to Organic matter.

Isaac R. Kaplan has researched Mineralogy in several fields, including Calcium carbonate, Sulfate, Carbonate and Sulfur. His Kerogen research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Oil shale, Diagenesis and Pyrolysis, Organic chemistry, Montmorillonite. His research in Hydrocarbon intersects with topics in Petroleum and Methane.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental chemistry (32.56%)
  • Organic matter (26.74%)
  • Mineralogy (23.84%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1995-2015)?

  • Hydrocarbon (16.28%)
  • Petroleum (9.30%)

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

Isaac R. Kaplan mostly deals with Environmental chemistry, Hydrocarbon, Petroleum, Mineralogy and Environmental engineering. The concepts of his Environmental chemistry study are interwoven with issues in Benzene, Chemical composition, Naphthalene, Carbon and Monoxide. His Hydrocarbon study combines topics in areas such as Petroleum engineering, Biodegradation, Gasoline, Chemical engineering and Homologous series.

His Petroleum study incorporates themes from Mining engineering, Archaeology and Methane. His Mineralogy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Pyrolysis and Oil shale. His Pyrolysis research includes themes of Kerogen, Thermal and Cretaceous.

Between 1995 and 2015, his most popular works were:

  • Insights into oil cracking based on laboratory experiments (207 citations)
  • Forensic Environmental Geochemistry: differentiation of fuel-types, their sources and release time (188 citations)
  • Homologous series of C1–C10 monocarboxylic acids and C1–C6 carbonyls in Los Angeles air and motor vehicle exhausts (101 citations)

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

  • Organic chemistry
  • Oxygen
  • Carbon dioxide

His scientific interests lie mostly in Hydrocarbon, Formaldehyde, Aldehyde, Mineralogy and Environmental chemistry. Isaac R. Kaplan has included themes like Chemical engineering, Coal and Homologous series in his Hydrocarbon study. His Formaldehyde study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Total organic carbon, Environmental engineering, Carboxylic acid, Nuclear chemistry and Aqueous two-phase system.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Oxalic acid and Succinic acid in addition to Aldehyde. His studies in Mineralogy integrate themes in fields like Petroleum, Methane and Natural gas. His study in Ethylbenzene extends to Environmental chemistry with its themes.
