Book Chapter
SKILLEN, N., MCCULLAGH, C. and ADAMS, M. 2015. Photocatalytic splitting of water. In Bahnemann, D. and Robertson, P.K.J. (eds.) Environmental Photochemistry Part III. Berlin: Springer [online], pages 45-86. Available at: https://doi.org/10.1007/698_2014_261

The use of photocatalysis for the photosplitting of water to generate hydrogen and oxygen has gained interest as a method for the conversion and storage of solar energy. The application of photocatalysis through catalyst engineering, mechanistic stud... Read More about Photocatalytic splitting of water..

Detection, analysis, and photocatalytic destruction of the freshwater taint compound geosmin. (2007)
Thesis
BELLU, E. 2007. Detection, analysis, and photocatalytic destruction of the freshwater taint compound geosmin. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

A significant issue affecting the aquaculture and water industries is the presence of off-flavour compounds in water, which cause problems by imparting an undesirable earthy/musty flavour and smell to water and fish. Two predominant off-flavour compo... Read More about Detection, analysis, and photocatalytic destruction of the freshwater taint compound geosmin..

Alternative strategies for security labelling/encoding of paper and plastic products. (2005)
Thesis
OFFICER, S.J. 2005. Alternative strategies for security labelling/encoding of paper and plastic products. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

A literature and patent review of current optical security techniques has been carried out and identified a need in the market for an improved optical security label to rival molecular fluorescent dyes. The label proposed was a rare earth (RE) doped... Read More about Alternative strategies for security labelling/encoding of paper and plastic products..

The destruction of the cyanobacterial toxin microcystin-LR by semiconductor photocatalysis. (2000)
Thesis
CORNISH, B.J.P.A. 2000. The destruction of the cyanobacterial toxin microcystin-LR by semiconductor photocatalysis. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

In fresh waters where cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) flourish, dense growths known as blooms occur. Such blooms present a threat to human and animal health as many of these cyanobacteria produce toxins. One such group of toxins are the microcystins...
