Journal Article
Binks, B. P., Johnston, S. K., Sekine, T., & Tyowua, A. T. (2015). Particles at oil–air surfaces : powdered oil, liquid oil marbles, and oil foam. ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, 7(26), 14328-14337. https://doi.org/10.1021/acsami.5b02890

The type of material stabilized by four kinds of fluorinated particles (sericite and bentonite platelet clays and spherical zinc oxide) in air–oil mixtures has been investigated. It depends on the particle wettability and the degree of shear. Upon vi... Read More about Particles at oil–air surfaces : powdered oil, liquid oil marbles, and oil foam.

Palladium-bismuth intermetallic and surface-poisoned catalysts for the semi-hydrogenation of 2-methyl-3-butyn-2-ol (2015)
Journal Article
Cherkasov, N., Ibhadon, A. O., McCue, A. J., Anderson, J. A., & Johnston, S. K. (2015). Palladium-bismuth intermetallic and surface-poisoned catalysts for the semi-hydrogenation of 2-methyl-3-butyn-2-ol. Applied catalysis. A, General, 497, 22-30. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.apcata.2015.02.038

The effects of poisoning of Pd catalysts with Bi and annealing in a polyol (ethylene glycol) were studied on the semi-hydrogenation of 2-methyl-3-butyn-2-ol (MBY). An increase in the Pd:Bi ratio from 7 to 1 in the Bi-poisoned catalysts decreased the...
