Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Organic chemistry
  • Oxygen
  • Carbon dioxide

Yong Sik Ok mainly investigates Biochar, Environmental chemistry, Soil water, Environmental remediation and Adsorption. He combines subjects such as Agronomy, Sorption and Charcoal with his study of Biochar. He has researched Environmental chemistry in several fields, including Soil contamination, Raw material, Eggshell, Soil pH and Biosorption.

Yong Sik Ok focuses mostly in the field of Soil water, narrowing it down to matters related to Organic matter and, in some cases, Biogeochemistry. His work in the fields of Environmental remediation, such as Soil remediation, overlaps with other areas such as Cost effectiveness. His Pyrolysis research incorporates elements of Carbon sequestration, Carbonization, Biomass and Sorbent.

His most cited work include:

  • Biochar as a sorbent for contaminant management in soil and water: a review. (1900 citations)
  • Biochar as a sorbent for contaminant management in soil and water: a review. (1900 citations)
  • Biochar as a sorbent for contaminant management in soil and water: a review. (1900 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Biochar, Environmental chemistry, Soil water, Adsorption and Agronomy. As part of the same scientific family, Yong Sik Ok usually focuses on Biochar, concentrating on Sorption and intersecting with Langmuir. His Environmental chemistry study combines topics in areas such as Contamination, Soil contamination, Environmental remediation and Bioavailability.

His Soil water research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Organic matter, Cadmium and Microbial population biology. In his research, Catalysis is intimately related to Nuclear chemistry, which falls under the overarching field of Adsorption. His study in Agronomy is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Soil fertility, Soil conditioner, Soil organic matter, Horticulture and Nutrient.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Biochar (44.02%)
  • Environmental chemistry (36.09%)
  • Soil water (24.24%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2020-2021)?

  • Biochar (44.02%)
  • Environmental chemistry (36.09%)
  • Pyrolysis (14.02%)

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

Yong Sik Ok mainly focuses on Biochar, Environmental chemistry, Pyrolysis, Adsorption and Biomass. His Biochar research includes elements of Soil quality, Raw material, Specific surface area, Anaerobic digestion and Pulp and paper industry. His research integrates issues of Soil water, Sludge, Contamination and Ecotoxicity in his study of Environmental chemistry.

His Pyrolysis research includes themes of Decomposition, Polymer and Infrared spectroscopy. His Adsorption study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Ion exchange, Inorganic chemistry, Wastewater, Phosphate and Carbon. Yong Sik Ok works mostly in the field of Waste management, limiting it down to concerns involving Pollutant and, occasionally, Environmental remediation.

Between 2020 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Engineered biochar – A sustainable solution for the removal of antibiotics from water (18 citations)
  • Remediation of poly- and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) contaminated soils - To mobilize or to immobilize or to degrade? (12 citations)
  • Recent advances in photodegradation of antibiotic residues in water (11 citations)

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

  • Organic chemistry
  • Oxygen
  • Ecology

His main research concerns Biochar, Environmental chemistry, Adsorption, Contamination and Sorption. His Biochar research is covered under the topics of Pyrolysis and Chemical engineering. His work in the fields of Environmental chemistry, such as Phytoremediation, intersects with other areas such as Amendment.

His Adsorption study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Specific surface area, Surface modification and Exfoliation joint. His Contamination study incorporates themes from Wastewater, Waste management, Leaching and Activated carbon. The Sorption study combines topics in areas such as Surface coating, Ether, Gasoline, Groundwater and ZSM-5.
