  • Chemical oxygen demand most often made with reference to Aeration. His research in Enhanced biological phosphorus removal intersects with topics in Phosphorus, Biochemistry, Propionate and Bioreactor.

His most cited work include:

  • Advances in enhanced biological phosphorus removal: from micro to macro scale. (745 citations)
  • Anaerobic oxidation of methane coupled to nitrate reduction in a novel archaeal lineage (619 citations)
  • Microbial fuel cells for simultaneous carbon and nitrogen removal. (365 citations)

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

Zhiguo Yuan focuses on Wastewater, Environmental chemistry, Sewage treatment, Nitrite and Environmental engineering. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Sulfide, Effluent, Pulp and paper industry and Sewage. His study explores the link between Environmental chemistry and topics such as Denitrification that cross with problems in Nitrification, Anoxic waters, Enhanced biological phosphorus removal and Phosphorus.

His studies deal with areas such as Nitrous oxide and Bacteria as well as Sewage treatment. His Nitrite research focuses on Nitrous acid and how it connects with Nuclear chemistry and Biochemistry. His Environmental engineering research includes themes of Aeration and Greenhouse gas.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Wastewater (28.00%)
  • Environmental chemistry (21.73%)
  • Sewage treatment (21.20%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Wastewater (28.00%)
  • Sewage treatment (21.20%)
  • Nitrite (18.13%)

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

Wastewater, Sewage treatment, Nitrite, Sanitary sewer and Environmental chemistry are his primary areas of study. His Wastewater research incorporates themes from Pollutant and Sewage. His Sewage treatment study combines topics in areas such as Effluent and Pulp and paper industry.

His Nitrite study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Food science, Nitrous acid, Activated sludge and Bacteria. His study in Sanitary sewer is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Hydrogen sulfide, Sulfide, Sediment transport and Corrosion. The various areas that Zhiguo Yuan examines in his Environmental chemistry study include Hydraulic retention time, Oxygen, Anaerobic oxidation of methane, Methane and Nitrate.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A methanotrophic archaeon couples anaerobic oxidation of methane to Fe(III) reduction (98 citations)
  • Antiepileptic drug carbamazepine promotes horizontal transfer of plasmid-borne multi-antibiotic resistance genes within and across bacterial genera. (77 citations)
  • Free ammonia enhances dark fermentative hydrogen production from waste activated sludge. (75 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Oxygen
  • Organic chemistry

His scientific interests lie mostly in Nitrite, Wastewater, Anaerobic oxidation of methane, Methane and Environmental chemistry. Zhiguo Yuan has researched Nitrite in several fields, including Inorganic chemistry, Nitrous acid and Anammox. In his study, Sequencing batch reactor is inextricably linked to Waste disposal, which falls within the broad field of Inorganic chemistry.

The concepts of his Wastewater study are interwoven with issues in Sanitary sewer, Pulp and paper industry, Sewage treatment and Biofilm. His Methane research integrates issues from Waste management, Electron donor, Bioreactor, Chromium and Electron acceptor. Zhiguo Yuan studies Anoxic waters, a branch of Environmental chemistry.
