2018 - Fellow of the Combustion Institute for innovative research in pollution control, pre-soot chemistry, and the development of Flame MBMS and mechanistic modeling

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Organic chemistry
  • Oxygen
  • Hydrogen

Phillip R. Westmoreland focuses on Mass spectrometry, Analytical chemistry, Photoionization, Combustion and Ionization. The concepts of his Analytical chemistry study are interwoven with issues in Propyne, Ab initio quantum chemistry methods and Molecular beam. His studies in Molecular beam integrate themes in fields like Propane, Ion, Mole fraction and Oxygenate.

His work in Combustion addresses issues such as Hydrocarbon, which are connected to fields such as Premixed flame, Reaction mechanism, Reaction intermediate, Double bond and Enol. As a member of one scientific family, Phillip R. Westmoreland mostly works in the field of Premixed flame, focusing on Benzene and, on occasion, Radical. Phillip R. Westmoreland focuses mostly in the field of Ionization, narrowing it down to matters related to Mass spectrum and, in some cases, Photodissociation, Elementary reaction, Chemical species and Chemical physics.

His most cited work include:

  • Biofuel combustion chemistry: from ethanol to biodiesel. (465 citations)
  • Kinetics and mechanism of cellulose pyrolysis (415 citations)
  • Forming benzene in flames by chemically activated isomerization (280 citations)

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

Combustion, Analytical chemistry, Mass spectrometry, Organic chemistry and Photochemistry are his primary areas of study. His research investigates the link between Combustion and topics such as Inorganic chemistry that cross with problems in Hydrogen. While the research belongs to areas of Analytical chemistry, he spends his time largely on the problem of Propyne, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Allene.

His Mass spectrometry study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Ionization and Photoionization. His Organic chemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Computational chemistry and Chemical engineering. His research integrates issues of Benzene, Reaction rate constant, Enol, Propargyl and Cyclohexane in his study of Photochemistry.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Combustion (20.95%)
  • Analytical chemistry (20.95%)
  • Mass spectrometry (19.59%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Photochemistry (16.89%)
  • Hydroperoxyl (2.70%)
  • Pyrolysis (10.14%)

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

Phillip R. Westmoreland spends much of his time researching Photochemistry, Hydroperoxyl, Pyrolysis, Molecule and Reaction rate constant. His work carried out in the field of Photochemistry brings together such families of science as Photoionization, Ketene, Reaction rate, Pentane and Alkane. As part of the same scientific family, he usually focuses on Hydroperoxyl, concentrating on Singlet oxygen and intersecting with Aniline, Singlet state and Reaction mechanism.

His work in Pyrolysis addresses subjects such as Raw material, which are connected to disciplines such as Chemical engineering. The Molecule study which covers Thermochemistry that intersects with Catalysis. Phillip R. Westmoreland combines subjects such as Mole fraction, Elementary reaction, Ab initio quantum chemistry methods and Shock tube with his study of Reaction rate constant.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Measuring hydroperoxide chain-branching agents during n-pentane low-temperature oxidation (32 citations)
  • Reaction of phenol with singlet oxygen (21 citations)
  • Reaction of Aniline with Singlet Oxygen (O21Δg). (18 citations)

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

  • Organic chemistry
  • Oxygen
  • Hydrogen

His primary areas of investigation include Photochemistry, Molecule, Mole fraction, Stoichiometry and Premixed flame. He has included themes like Ketene, Reaction rate, Pentane, Alkane and Mass spectrometry in his Photochemistry study. Reaction rate constant is closely connected to Shock tube in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Mole fraction.

In Stoichiometry, Phillip R. Westmoreland works on issues like Thermochemistry, which are connected to Combustion. His Pyrolysis research extends to Combustion, which is thematically connected. His Premixed flame research integrates issues from Data mining, Data model and CHEMKIN.
