Journal Article
NKWOADA, A.U. and OFFICER, S. 2016. Novel dysprosium and terbium doped taggants for hydrocarbon indentification. Journal of advanced chemical sciences [online], 2(3), pages 296-298. Available from: https://www.jacsdirectory.com/journal-of-advanced-chemical-sciences/articleview.php?id=102

Taggants are synthesized fluorescent materials that have longer lifetime and are able to discriminate against background interference arising from hydrocarbons. Doped taggants were prepared with dysprosium and terbium rare earths in a stable borosili... Read More about Novel dysprosium and terbium doped taggants for hydrocarbon identification..

Development of novel lanthanide based particle tracers for rapid monitoring of soil erosion. (2016)
Thesis
CRUICKSHANK, L. 2016. Development of novel lanthanide based particle tracers for rapid monitoring of soil erosion. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Soil erosion is a global problem, affecting much of the world's agricultural land. As the world's population increases, the pressures placed upon the land resource to provide space for food production, leisure, housing and industrial facilities also...
