Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Organic chemistry
  • Oxygen
  • Enzyme

Reyes Sierra-Alvarez mainly focuses on Biodegradation, Environmental chemistry, Wastewater, Organic chemistry and Methanogenesis. Her Reductive dechlorination study, which is part of a larger body of work in Biodegradation, is frequently linked to Dehalococcoides, bridging the gap between disciplines. Her Environmental chemistry research includes themes of Perfluorooctane, Denitrification, Denitrifying bacteria and Microbial metabolism.

In her study, Aerobic bacteria and Cometabolism is inextricably linked to Microbial biodegradation, which falls within the broad field of Organic chemistry. The concepts of her Methanogenesis study are interwoven with issues in Activated sludge, Octanol, Chlorine, Bioreactor and Anaerobic digestion. Her Bioreactor research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Sulfate-reducing bacteria, Sulfate and Nitrite.

Her most cited work include:

  • Sulfide oxidation under chemolithoautotrophic denitrifying conditions (244 citations)
  • Removal of perfluorinated surfactants by sorption onto granular activated carbon, zeolite and sludge. (242 citations)
  • Microbial transformation and degradation of polychlorinated biphenyls. (231 citations)

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

Reyes Sierra-Alvarez spends much of her time researching Environmental chemistry, Nuclear chemistry, Biodegradation, Inorganic chemistry and Organic chemistry. Reyes Sierra-Alvarez interconnects Wastewater, Bioreactor, Arsenic, Sulfate and Nitrate in the investigation of issues within Environmental chemistry. Her Nitrate study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Denitrification and Denitrifying bacteria.

Her Nuclear chemistry research includes elements of Methanogenesis and Aqueous solution. Her Biodegradation research integrates issues from Food science, Softwood, Botany, Biotransformation and Microbial biodegradation. Her research investigates the connection between Inorganic chemistry and topics such as Sulfide that intersect with problems in Sulfur.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental chemistry (28.64%)
  • Nuclear chemistry (16.36%)
  • Biodegradation (14.55%)

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

  • Environmental chemistry (28.64%)
  • Nuclear chemistry (16.36%)
  • Aqueous solution (9.09%)

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

Reyes Sierra-Alvarez mostly deals with Environmental chemistry, Nuclear chemistry, Aqueous solution, Biotransformation and dnaN. She has researched Environmental chemistry in several fields, including Sulfate, Nitrate, Sewage treatment and Enrichment culture. Her Nitrate research incorporates themes from Denitrification and Denitrifying bacteria.

Her research integrates issues of Sulfide, Heterotroph, Sulfur and Industrial wastewater treatment in her study of Denitrification. Her Nuclear chemistry study incorporates themes from Methanogenesis, Toxicity, Metal and Adsorption. Her studies in Aqueous solution integrate themes in fields like Characterization, Perfluorooctanoic acid, Polymer and Arsenite.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Treatment of perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS) using a large-scale sonochemical reactor (23 citations)
  • Cerium dioxide (CeO2) nanoparticles decrease arsenite (As(III)) cytotoxicity to 16HBE14o- human bronchial epithelial cells. (11 citations)
  • Ecotoxicity of the insensitive munitions compound 3-nitro-1,2,4-triazol-5-one (NTO) and its reduced metabolite 3-amino-1,2,4-triazol-5-one (ATO). (11 citations)

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

  • Organic chemistry
  • Oxygen
  • Enzyme

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Environmental chemistry, Aqueous solution, Nuclear chemistry, Arsenite and Sulfate. The Environmental chemistry study combines topics in areas such as Green chemistry, Soil chemistry and Sodium. Her Aqueous solution study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Decomposition and Fluorotelomer.

The various areas that Reyes Sierra-Alvarez examines in her Nuclear chemistry study include Metabolite, Toxicity, Acute toxicity and Alkyl sulfonate. In her research on the topic of Arsenite, Arsenate, Gypsum, Calcite, Leaching and Toxicity characteristic leaching procedure is strongly related with Dissolution. Her work deals with themes such as Perfluorooctane, Sulfonate, Sodium carbonate, Sonication and Salt, which intersect with Sulfate.
