Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Organic chemistry
  • Oxygen
  • Carbon dioxide

Robert C. Brown mostly deals with Pyrolysis, Biomass, Biofuel, Waste management and Char. The concepts of his Pyrolysis study are interwoven with issues in Fluidized bed and Cellulose. His study in the fields of Lignocellulosic biomass under the domain of Biomass overlaps with other disciplines such as Capital cost.

He has included themes like Biodiesel, Renewable resource and Chemical industry in his Biofuel study. His work deals with themes such as Hydrogen production, Commodity chemicals, Raw material and Producer gas, which intersect with Waste management. His Char research includes elements of Inorganic chemistry, BET theory, Catalysis, Carbon and Tar.

His most cited work include:

  • Techno-Economic Analysis of Biomass Fast Pyrolysis to Transportation Fuels (529 citations)
  • Characterization of biochar from fast pyrolysis and gasification systems (504 citations)
  • Influence of inorganic salts on the primary pyrolysis products of cellulose (501 citations)

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

His main research concerns Pyrolysis, Biomass, Waste management, Organic chemistry and Biofuel. The Char research Robert C. Brown does as part of his general Pyrolysis study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Levoglucosan, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. Robert C. Brown focuses mostly in the field of Biomass, narrowing it down to topics relating to Pulp and paper industry and, in certain cases, Fermentation.

In Waste management, he works on issues like Combustion, which are connected to Coal and Fly ash. Robert C. Brown combines subjects such as Raw material and Gasoline with his study of Biofuel. His Catalysis study incorporates themes from Coke and Carbon.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Pyrolysis (32.11%)
  • Biomass (21.81%)
  • Waste management (21.08%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Pyrolysis (32.11%)
  • Biomass (21.81%)
  • Organic chemistry (16.42%)

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

Robert C. Brown mainly investigates Pyrolysis, Biomass, Organic chemistry, Biochar and Chemical engineering. His Pyrolysis research integrates issues from Fluidized bed, Cellulose, Lignocellulosic biomass, Lignin and Pulp and paper industry. While the research belongs to areas of Biomass, Robert C. Brown spends his time largely on the problem of Sugar, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Xylose.

His work on Catalysis, Solvent and Hydrocarbon is typically connected to Levoglucosan as part of general Organic chemistry study, connecting several disciplines of science. The subject of his Biochar research is within the realm of Waste management. Robert C. Brown studied Chemical engineering and Mass transfer that intersect with Syngas, Packed bed, Syngas fermentation and Continuous stirred-tank reactor.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Elucidating the effect of desilication on aluminum-rich ZSM-5 zeolite and its consequences on biomass catalytic fast pyrolysis (58 citations)
  • Auger reactors for pyrolysis of biomass and wastes (54 citations)
  • Syngas fermentation by Clostridium carboxidivorans P7 in a horizontal rotating packed bed biofilm reactor with enhanced ethanol production (44 citations)

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

  • Organic chemistry
  • Oxygen
  • Carbon dioxide

Robert C. Brown mainly focuses on Pyrolysis, Organic chemistry, Catalysis, Biomass and Biofuel. His Pyrolysis study necessitates a more in-depth grasp of Chemical engineering. His research integrates issues of Ethanol fuel and Acetic acid in his study of Chemical engineering.

His study on Cellulose, Lignin, Oxygenate and Reaction mechanism is often connected to Levoglucosan as part of broader study in Organic chemistry. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Inorganic chemistry and Amino acid, Proline. His work carried out in the field of Biofuel brings together such families of science as Renewable natural gas, Energy supply and Primary energy.
