Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Coal
  • Oxygen
  • Mineral

His primary areas of study are Coal, Mineralogy, Geochemistry, Pyrite and Illite. His research in Coal tackles topics such as Volcanic ash which are related to areas like Alkali feldspar. His work deals with themes such as Sedimentary rock, Coal combustion products and Analytical chemistry, which intersect with Mineralogy.

His Geochemistry research incorporates elements of Bauxite, Sedimentary depositional environment and Clausthalite. His research in Pyrite focuses on subjects like Anthracite, which are connected to Silicate minerals, Sanidine, Mercury and Environmental chemistry. His Illite research incorporates themes from Tonstein, Carbonate minerals, Petrology, Coffinite and Silicic.

His most cited work include:

  • Geochemistry of trace elements in Chinese coals: A review of abundances, genetic types, impacts on human health, and industrial utilization (583 citations)
  • Coal deposits as potential alternative sources for lanthanides and yttrium (378 citations)
  • Mineralogy and geochemistry of boehmite-rich coals: New insights from the Haerwusu Surface Mine, Jungar Coalfield, Inner Mongolia, China (266 citations)

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

His main research concerns Coal, Geochemistry, Mineralogy, Pyrite and Illite. His Coal study combines topics in areas such as Environmental chemistry and Fly ash. His Geochemistry study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Permian, Carbonate and China.

While the research belongs to areas of Mineralogy, Shifeng Dai spends his time largely on the problem of Quartz, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Silicate. In general Pyrite, his work in Marcasite is often linked to Organic matter linking many areas of study. His research investigates the connection with Illite and areas like Tonstein which intersect with concerns in Zircon.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Coal (66.86%)
  • Geochemistry (54.29%)
  • Mineralogy (53.71%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Coal (66.86%)
  • Geochemistry (54.29%)
  • Coal mining (13.14%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Coal, Geochemistry, Coal mining, Organic matter and Diagenesis. Shifeng Dai does research in Coal, focusing on Maceral specifically. His work on Felsic, Sedimentary rock, Terrigenous sediment and Pyroclastic rock as part of general Geochemistry research is frequently linked to δ13C, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science.

His study explores the link between Terrigenous sediment and topics such as Sedimentary depositional environment that cross with problems in Facies, Mineralogy and Chlorite. The study incorporates disciplines such as Inner mongolia and Clastic rock in addition to Coal mining. His Illite study incorporates themes from Kaolinite and Buddingtonite.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The importance of minerals in coal as the hosts of chemical elements: A review (73 citations)
  • Rare earth elements and yttrium in coal ash from the Luzhou power plant in Sichuan, Southwest China: Concentration, characterization and optimized extraction (62 citations)
  • Recognition of peat depositional environments in coal: A review (51 citations)

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

  • Oxygen
  • Mineral
  • Coal

Shifeng Dai spends much of his time researching Coal, Geochemistry, Coal mining, Diagenesis and Environmental chemistry. He has included themes like Structural basin and Paleontology in his Coal study. His work on Terrigenous sediment as part of general Geochemistry research is often related to Organic matter, thus linking different fields of science.

The Coal mining study combines topics in areas such as Clastic rock, Anthracite, Felsic and Monazite. The concepts of his Diagenesis study are interwoven with issues in Peat, Pennsylvanian, Coalbed methane and Maceral. His research in Environmental chemistry intersects with topics in Carbon nanotube, Coal rank, Petrography, Mercury and Pyrite.
