Title Degradation of Lignin in Wheat Straw during Growth of the Oyster Mushroom (Pleurotus ostreatus) Using Off-line Thermochemolysis with Tetramethylammonium Hydroxide and Solid-State 13C NMR
Output type: Journal article
Journal title: Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry
Month/year of publication: May 2001
Pagination: 2709-2716
Volume: 49 (6)
ISSN: 1520-5118
URL: Original article on web ?
DOI: 10.1021/jf001409a ?
Co-authors: Martin, Shona C., Snape, Colin E., Vane, Christopher H.
Other relevant details: For the first time thermochemolysis and solid-state NMR are used to monitor the changing molecular composition of straw during white-rot degradation. Provides fundamental insights into the fungal transformation of lignocellulose and impacts understanding of carbon capture from plant litter into soils. PI and senior author.

Title Degradation of 5α-cholestane into dimethylperhydrophenanthrenes: an experimental and theoretical study
Output type: Journal article
Journal title: Organic Geochemistry
Month/year of publication: July 2004
Pagination: 1337-1341
Volume: 35 (11-12)
ISSN: 0146-6380
URL: Original article on web ?
DOI: 10.1016/j.orggeochem.2004.05.003 ?
Co-authors: Duin, Adri C.T. van, Sugden, Mark A.
Other relevant details: A new thermodynamics-based, theoretically consistent account of how molecular properties govern the isomeric distributions of natural product-derived hydrocarbons is given. Establishes molecular mechanics as a viable approach to identify the stereochemistry and GC peak assignments for hydrocarbon isomers in both pyrolysis experiments and petroleum. PI and senior author.

Title Kerogen-Bound and Free Hopanoic Acids in the Messel Oil Shale Kerogen
Output type: Journal article
Journal title: Chirality
Month/year of publication: July 2001
Pagination: 510-516
Volume: 13 (8)
ISSN: 1520-636X
URL: Original article on web ?
DOI: 10.1002/chir.1069 ?
Co-authors: BASHIR, F. ZAHRA, SUGDEN, MARK A.
Other relevant details: First application of the tetramethylammonium hydroxide thermochemolysis method in the analysis of the isomeric distributions of biomarkers bound to macromolecular sedimentary organic matter.Widely applicable in petroleum geochemistry (e.g. biodegradation) and provides unique information about the molecular composition of kerogens during laboratory simulation of oil generation. PI and senior author.

Title The closed system pyrolysis of β-O-4 lignin substructure model compounds
Output type: Journal article
Journal title: Organic Geochemistry
Month/year of publication: October 2002
Pagination: 1523-1531
Volume: 33 (12)
ISSN: 0146-6380
URL: Original article on web ?
DOI: 10.1016/S0146-6380(02)00119-5 ?
Co-authors: Drage, Trevor C., Vane, Christopher H.
Other relevant details: Novel and detailed study, under both aqueous and anhydrous conditions, of the pyrolysis of lignin using substructure model compounds which were synthesized in this laboratory. This helps elucidate the processes leading to black carbon formation which may play an important role within the carbon cycle. PI and senior author.
