2018 - Fellow of the Combustion Institute for exceptional fundamental research leading to a better understanding of soot formation in flames

The Canadian Academy of Engineering

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Organic chemistry
  • Thermodynamics
  • Oxygen

Murray J. Thomson mostly deals with Diffusion flame, Soot, Combustion, Thermodynamics and Laminar flow. His Diffusion flame research is under the purview of Organic chemistry. In general Organic chemistry study, his work on Decane, Degree of unsaturation and Reaction intermediate often relates to the realm of Coalescence, thereby connecting several areas of interest.

Murray J. Thomson has included themes like Volume fraction, Number density, Adiabatic flame temperature and Particle size in his Soot study. His research in Combustion intersects with topics in Biodiesel, Inorganic chemistry, Chemical kinetics, Gasoline and Biofuel. His Laminar flow study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Laminar flame speed, Premixed flame and Volume.

His most cited work include:

  • An experimental and kinetic modeling study of n-butanol combustion (233 citations)
  • A review of the combustion and emissions properties of advanced transportation biofuels and their impact on existing and future engines (231 citations)
  • A wide-ranging kinetic modeling study of methyl butanoate combustion (183 citations)

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

Murray J. Thomson focuses on Soot, Combustion, Diffusion flame, Thermodynamics and Chemical engineering. Soot is a primary field of his research addressed under Organic chemistry. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Biofuel, Ignition system, Pyrolysis and Mechanics.

His Diffusion flame study also includes fields such as

  • Number density which intersects with area such as Particle size,
  • Aerosol together with Particle-size distribution. His work on Condensation as part of general Thermodynamics research is frequently linked to Diffusion, bridging the gap between disciplines. His study looks at the relationship between Laminar flow and fields such as Volume, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Soot (43.85%)
  • Combustion (39.23%)
  • Diffusion flame (32.31%)

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

  • Soot (43.85%)
  • Chemical engineering (19.23%)
  • Combustion (39.23%)

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

His primary areas of study are Soot, Chemical engineering, Combustion, Diffusion flame and Pyrolysis. His work deals with themes such as Nucleation, Laminar flow, Thermodynamics, Jet fuel and Analytical chemistry, which intersect with Soot. The study incorporates disciplines such as Particulates and Incandescence in addition to Analytical chemistry.

The concepts of his Chemical engineering study are interwoven with issues in In situ, Carbon, Amorphous carbon, Graphite and Filtration. Murray J. Thomson works in the field of Combustion, focusing on Combustor in particular. His Diffusion flame research integrates issues from Aerosol, Alkyl, Methane, Environmental chemistry and Mole fraction.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A radical approach to soot formation (28 citations)
  • In Situ Mechanistic Elucidation of Superior Si‐C‐Graphite Li‐Ion Battery Anode Formation with Thermal Safety Aspects (20 citations)
  • The distillation curve and sooting propensity of a typical jet fuel (19 citations)

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

  • Thermodynamics
  • Organic chemistry
  • Oxygen

His primary scientific interests are in Soot, Chemical engineering, Colloidal particle, Nanorod and Complex fluid. His Soot study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Diffusion flame, Volume, Methane and Nucleation. His Diffusion flame research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Mixing, Mole fraction, Laminar flow, Thermodynamics and Liquid fuel.

Murray J. Thomson interconnects Fluoranthene, Pyrene, Particulates, Analytical chemistry and Fraction in the investigation of issues within Nucleation. His Chemical engineering study incorporates themes from In situ, Graphite and Silicon. His study in Colloidal particle intersects with areas of studies such as Active matter, Nanotechnology, Streamlines, streaklines, and pathlines, Flow and 3d printed.
