Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Organic chemistry
  • Oxygen
  • Catalysis

His primary areas of study are Photocatalysis, Environmental chemistry, Wastewater, Water treatment and Sewage treatment. His Photocatalysis study combines topics in areas such as Aqueous solution, Pilot plant, Pollutant and Titanium dioxide. The Environmental chemistry study combines topics in areas such as Atrazine, Mineralization, Biodegradation, Human decontamination and Solar photocatalysis.

The concepts of his Wastewater study are interwoven with issues in Waste disposal, Hydrogen peroxide, Effluent and Nuclear chemistry. The study incorporates disciplines such as Chemical engineering and Reuse in addition to Water treatment. Sewage treatment is a subfield of Waste management that Sixto Malato tackles.

His most cited work include:

  • Decontamination and disinfection of water by solar photocatalysis: Recent overview and trends (1909 citations)
  • Combination of Advanced Oxidation Processes and biological treatments for wastewater decontamination—A review (1487 citations)
  • Advanced oxidation processes for water treatment: advances and trends for R & D (609 citations)

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

Sixto Malato spends much of his time researching Photocatalysis, Environmental chemistry, Wastewater, Pilot plant and Effluent. His Photocatalysis research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Water treatment, Chemical engineering, Titanium dioxide and Mineralization. His study explores the link between Environmental chemistry and topics such as Biodegradation that cross with problems in Activated sludge.

His Wastewater research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Pulp and paper industry, Hydrogen peroxide and Sewage treatment. As a member of one scientific family, Sixto Malato mostly works in the field of Effluent, focusing on Nuclear chemistry and, on occasion, Chromatography. The various areas that Sixto Malato examines in his Waste management study include Environmental engineering and Solar photocatalysis.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Photocatalysis (41.83%)
  • Environmental chemistry (35.18%)
  • Wastewater (32.96%)

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

  • Wastewater (32.96%)
  • Effluent (19.67%)
  • Photocatalysis (41.83%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Wastewater, Effluent, Photocatalysis, Environmental chemistry and Pilot plant. He combines subjects such as Pulp and paper industry and Sewage treatment with his study of Wastewater. While the research belongs to areas of Effluent, Sixto Malato spends his time largely on the problem of Chloride, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Sulfate.

To a larger extent, he studies Catalysis with the aim of understanding Photocatalysis. His Environmental chemistry study also includes

  • Pollutant which connect with Water treatment,
  • Hydrogen peroxide that intertwine with fields like Nanocomposite. His Pilot plant research includes themes of Hydrogen production, Pentachlorophenol and Human decontamination.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Consolidated vs new advanced treatment methods for the removal of contaminants of emerging concern from urban wastewater. (196 citations)
  • Decontamination and disinfection of water by solar photocatalysis: The pilot plants of the Plataforma Solar de Almeria (87 citations)
  • Strategies for reducing cost by using solar photo-Fenton treatment combined with nanofiltration to remove microcontaminants in real municipal effluents: Toxicity and economic assessment (59 citations)

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

  • Organic chemistry
  • Oxygen
  • Catalysis

His primary scientific interests are in Wastewater, Photocatalysis, Effluent, Environmental chemistry and EDDS. His Wastewater study often links to related topics such as Sewage treatment. His Photocatalysis research is under the purview of Catalysis.

Effluent is the subject of his research, which falls under Waste management. His Environmental chemistry research integrates issues from Microorganism, Organic matter, Chromatography and Phenol. As part of one scientific family, Sixto Malato deals mainly with the area of Pilot plant, narrowing it down to issues related to the Natural water, and often Oxidizing agent and Peroxydisulfate.
