Microwave fluidized bed for biomass pyrolysis. Part II: Effect of process parameters (2017)
Journal Article
Adam, M., Beneroso, D., Katrib, J., Kingman, S., & Robinson, J. P. (in press). Microwave fluidized bed for biomass pyrolysis. Part II: Effect of process parameters. Biofuels, Bioproducts and Biorefining, doi:10.1002/bbb.1781

The microwave fluidized bed process developed in Part I (DOI: 10.1002/bbb.1780), in which the heating heterogeneity issues are overcome, has been applied to the pyrolysis of biomass. The degree of pyrolysis was established by studying the behavior of... Read More

Microwave fluidized bed for biomass pyrolysis. Part I: Process design (2017)
Journal Article
Adam, M., Beneroso, D., Katrib, J., Kingman, S., & Robinson, J. P. (in press). Microwave fluidized bed for biomass pyrolysis. Part I: Process design. Biofuels, Bioproducts and Biorefining, doi:10.1002/bbb.1780

The production of bio-oils from microwave pyrolysis has received increasing attention from bioenergy researchers, but no studies reported to date have proposed reliable solutions to avoid thermal runaway. The motivation of this paper is to develop an... Read More

Ovarian reserve after salpingectomy: a systematic review and meta-analysis (2017)
Journal Article
Mohamed, A. A., Yosef, A. H., James, C., Al-Hussaini, T. K., Bedaiwy, M. A., & Amer, S. A. (2017). Ovarian reserve after salpingectomy: a systematic review and meta-analysis. Acta Obstetricia et Gynecologica Scandinavica, 96(7), doi:10.1111/aogs.13133

Introduction Although there has been a growing concern over the possible damaging effect of salpingectomy on ovarian reserve, this issue remains uncertain. The purpose of this meta-analysis was to test the hypothesis that salpingectomy may comprom... Read More
