Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Thermodynamics
  • Polymer
  • Organic chemistry

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Capillary action, Mechanics, Analytical chemistry, Adsorption and Capillary number. The concepts of his Capillary action study are interwoven with issues in Particle aggregation, Optics, Interaction energy, Classical mechanics and Electrodipping force. His research in Mechanics intersects with topics in Surface tension, Capillary bridges and Capillary condensation.

Surface tension is the subject of his research, which falls under Thermodynamics. His Adsorption research includes elements of Sodium dodecyl sulfate, Monolayer, Amphiphile, Pulmonary surfactant and Ostwald ripening. His Pulmonary surfactant research includes themes of Inorganic chemistry, Ionic bonding and Micelle.

His most cited work include:

  • Two-dimensional crystallization (590 citations)
  • Capillary interactions between particles bound to interfaces, liquid films and biomembranes. (498 citations)
  • Capillary forces between colloidal particles (421 citations)

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

Peter A. Kralchevsky mainly investigates Pulmonary surfactant, Surface tension, Thermodynamics, Micelle and Capillary action. The study incorporates disciplines such as Inorganic chemistry, Organic chemistry, Adsorption, Aqueous solution and Analytical chemistry in addition to Pulmonary surfactant. While the research belongs to areas of Surface tension, Peter A. Kralchevsky spends his time largely on the problem of Physical chemistry, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Mass transfer.

His Thermodynamics study also includes fields such as

  • Ionic bonding together with Counterion,
  • Surface force which connect with DLVO theory. His Micelle research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Chemical physics and Colloid. His Capillary action research incorporates elements of Mechanics, Electrodipping force, Interaction energy and Classical mechanics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Pulmonary surfactant (30.73%)
  • Surface tension (25.69%)
  • Thermodynamics (22.94%)

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

  • Pulmonary surfactant (30.73%)
  • Micelle (22.48%)
  • Adsorption (21.56%)

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

His primary areas of study are Pulmonary surfactant, Micelle, Adsorption, Rheology and Aggregation number. His work carried out in the field of Pulmonary surfactant brings together such families of science as Hard water and Surface tension. His Surface tension research integrates issues from Composite material, Capillary action and Drop.

The Capillary action study combines topics in areas such as Wetting, Mechanics, Contact angle and Optics. His Micelle study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Ionic bonding and Thermodynamics. His research integrates issues of Surface force, Polymer and Aqueous solution in his study of Adsorption.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Chemical Physics of Colloid Systems and Interfaces (94 citations)
  • Micelle–monomer equilibria in solutions of ionic surfactants and in ionic–nonionic mixtures: A generalized phase separation model (48 citations)
  • Growth of wormlike micelles in nonionic surfactant solutions: Quantitative theory vs. experiment. (28 citations)

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

  • Thermodynamics
  • Organic chemistry
  • Polymer

His primary areas of investigation include Micelle, Aggregation number, Rheology, Phase and Viscosity. His Micelle research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Inorganic chemistry and Pulmonary surfactant. His studies deal with areas such as Chemical physics, Ionic bonding, Charged particle and Thermodynamics as well as Aggregation number.

His study in Rheology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Bancroft rule, Emulsion, Marangoni effect, Colloid and Cocamidopropyl betaine. The concepts of his Thermodynamics of micellization study are interwoven with issues in Ionic strength, Counterion, Adsorption and Conductivity. His research combines Surface tension and Aqueous solution.
