1988 - Member of the National Academy of Sciences
T. Kent Kirk focuses on Phanerochaete, Lignin, Chrysosporium, Organic chemistry and Botany. His Phanerochaete study is related to the wider topic of Biochemistry. His research in Lignin focuses on subjects like Decomposition, which are connected to Coriolus versicolor, Substrate, Pulp and paper industry and Chemical engineering.
In his study, Extracellular and Strain is inextricably linked to Microbiology, which falls within the broad field of Chrysosporium. His work on Alcohol and Lignin peroxidase as part of general Organic chemistry research is frequently linked to Library science, Subject areas and Biomass fuels, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. His study on Lenzites, Fungus, Postia placenta and Ultrastructure is often connected to Volume as part of broader study in Botany.
T. Kent Kirk mainly focuses on Lignin, Phanerochaete, Organic chemistry, Chrysosporium and Biochemistry. Lignin is a subfield of Botany that T. Kent Kirk explores. Phanerochaete is a primary field of his research addressed under Enzyme.
His research on Organic chemistry frequently links to adjacent areas such as Polyporus. His studies deal with areas such as Ecology, Nutrient, Nitrogen, Microbiology and Horticulture as well as Chrysosporium. When carried out as part of a general Biochemistry research project, his work on Cellulase, Cellulose, Cycloheximide and Glutamine is frequently linked to work in Secondary metabolite, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Pulp and paper industry, Lignin peroxidase, Cellulose, Waste management and Loblolly pine. His work deals with themes such as Environmental chemistry and Lignin, which intersect with Lignin peroxidase. His Lignin study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Extracellular and Manganese peroxidase.
His work on Cellulase as part of general Cellulose study is frequently linked to Degree of polymerization, bridging the gap between disciplines. By researching both Degree of polymerization and Chrysosporium, T. Kent Kirk produces research that crosses academic boundaries. Benzoic acid is closely connected to Phanerochaete in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Hardwood.
Phanerochaete, Lignin peroxidase, Enzyme, Horticulture and Botany are his primary areas of study. His studies in Lignin peroxidase integrate themes in fields like Benzaldehyde, Cinnamic acid, Stereochemistry, Metabolic pathway and Benzoic acid. His Enzyme research incorporates themes from Oxygen, Phenylalanine and Lignin.
His Horticulture study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Hardwood and Chrysosporium. His Chrysosporium research includes elements of Molecular size and Fungus. T. Kent Kirk has included themes like Size-exclusion chromatography, Cellulose and Depolymerization in his Botany study.
