Mixtures of either a hydrocarbon wax in a hydrocarbon solvent or a long chain triacyl glyceride (TAG) in a TAG solvent show complex solubility boundary temperature hysteresis and precipitated crystal network formation leading to gelation. For these i... Read More about Solubility behaviour, crystallisation kinetics and pour point : a comparison of linear alkane and triacyl glyceride solute/solvent mixtures.

How polymer additives reduce the pour point of hydrocarbon solvents containing wax crystals (2015)
Journal Article
Binks, B. P., Fletcher, P. D. I., Roberts, N. A., Dunkerley, J., Greenfield, H., Mastrangelo, A., & Trickett, K. (2015). How polymer additives reduce the pour point of hydrocarbon solvents containing wax crystals. Physical chemistry chemical physics : PCCP, 17(6), 4107-4117. doi:10.1039/c4cp04329d

We have investigated how four different pour point depressant (PPD) polymers affect the pour point transition in mixtures of a single pure wax in a solvent. We used either n-eicosane (C20), CH3(CH2)18CH3, n-tetracosane (C24), CH3(CH2)22CH3 or n-hexat...

Stable isotope records of Late Quaternary climate and hydrology from Mediterranean lakes : the ISOMED synthesis (2008)
Journal Article
Roberts, N., Jones, M. D., Benkaddour, A., Eastwood, W. J., Filippi, M. L., Frogley, M. R., …Zanchetta, G. (2008). Stable isotope records of Late Quaternary climate and hydrology from Mediterranean lakes : the ISOMED synthesis. Quaternary science reviews, 27(25-26), 2426-2441. doi:10.1016/j.quascirev.2008.09.005

Lake isotope records can be used to assess the spatial coherency of Late Quaternary climate change across the circum-Mediterranean region. We place modern and palaeo-data within a simple conceptual lake response model to show that the isotope hydrolo...
