Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Organic chemistry
  • Oxygen
  • Redox

Urs von Gunten focuses on Ozone, Environmental chemistry, Reaction rate constant, Water treatment and Hydroxyl radical. His Ozone study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Inorganic chemistry, Chlorine, Bromate, Radical and Dissolved organic carbon. His Environmental chemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Surface water, Ferrate, Wastewater, Carbon and Waste disposal.

His Reaction rate constant study incorporates themes from Chemical decomposition, Free-radical reaction, Photochemistry, Aqueous solution and Reaction mechanism. The concepts of his Water treatment study are interwoven with issues in Phenols, Pollutant and Phenol. Urs von Gunten has included themes like Chromatography and N-Nitrosodimethylamine in his Hydroxyl radical study.

His most cited work include:

  • The Challenge of Micropollutants in Aquatic Systems (2084 citations)
  • Ozonation of drinking water: part I. Oxidation kinetics and product formation. (1558 citations)
  • Oxidation of pharmaceuticals during ozonation and advanced oxidation processes (1146 citations)

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

His main research concerns Environmental chemistry, Ozone, Water treatment, Wastewater and Chlorine. His work in the fields of Environmental chemistry, such as Dissolved organic carbon, intersects with other areas such as Web of science. His Ozone study combines topics in areas such as Radical, Hydroxyl radical, Bromate, Reaction rate constant and Hydrogen peroxide.

His work focuses on many connections between Reaction rate constant and other disciplines, such as Aqueous solution, that overlap with his field of interest in Reaction mechanism. His work in Wastewater addresses subjects such as Effluent, which are connected to disciplines such as Nitrate. He combines subjects such as Inorganic chemistry, Chlorine dioxide, Reactivity and Bromine with his study of Chlorine.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental chemistry (82.77%)
  • Ozone (70.47%)
  • Water treatment (46.09%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Environmental chemistry (82.77%)
  • Reaction rate constant (42.95%)
  • Ozone (70.47%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Environmental chemistry, Reaction rate constant, Ozone, Chlorine and Dissolved organic carbon. His Environmental chemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Water treatment and Hypobromous acid. His Reaction rate constant study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Bromine, Inorganic chemistry, Benzonitrile, Photochemistry and Hypoiodous acid.

Urs von Gunten focuses mostly in the field of Inorganic chemistry, narrowing it down to topics relating to Aqueous solution and, in certain cases, Hydrogen peroxide. His Ozone research includes elements of Absorbance, Scavenger, Singlet oxygen, Wastewater and Reactivity. His studies in Dissolved organic carbon integrate themes in fields like Hydroxyl radical, Detection limit, Chromatography, Bromate and Sewage treatment.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Persulfate-Based Advanced Oxidation: Critical Assessment of Opportunities and Roadblocks. (167 citations)
  • Persulfate-Based Advanced Oxidation: Critical Assessment of Opportunities and Roadblocks. (167 citations)
  • Mixture effects of drinking water disinfection by-products: implications for risk assessment (11 citations)

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

  • Organic chemistry
  • Oxygen
  • Redox

Urs von Gunten mainly focuses on Medicinal chemistry, Hydroxyl radical, Dissolved organic carbon, Ozone and Chlorine. His studies deal with areas such as Water treatment, Cleavage, Ring and Phenols as well as Medicinal chemistry. His Hydroxyl radical research is under the purview of Radical.

The various areas that Urs von Gunten examines in his Dissolved organic carbon study include Bromate, Effluent, Wastewater, Chromatography and Sewage treatment. His Ozone research includes themes of Detection limit, Reactivity, Decarboxylation, Selectivity and Scavenger. His study in Chlorine is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Semiquinone, Benzene, Hydroquinone and Phenol.
