Acceleration of dolomitization by zinc in saline waters (2019)
Journal Article
Vandeginste, V., Snell, O., Hall, M. R., Steer, E., & Vandeginste, A. (2019). Acceleration of dolomitization by zinc in saline waters. Nature Communications, 10, doi:10.1038/s41467-019-09870-y

Dolomite (CaMg(CO3)2) plays a key role in the global carbon cycle. Yet, the chemical mechanisms that catalyze its formation remain an enigma. Here, using batch reactor experiments, we demonstrate an unexpected acceleration of dolomite formation by zi... Read More about Acceleration of dolomitization by zinc in saline waters.

Epitaxial growth of γ-InSe and α, β, and γ-In2Se3 on ε-GaSe (2018)
Journal Article
Balakrishnan, N., Steer, E. D., Smith, E. F., Kudrynskyi, Z. R., Kovalyuk, Z. D., Eaves, L., …Beton, P. H. (2018). Epitaxial growth of γ-InSe and α, β, and γ-In2Se3 on ε-GaSe. 2D Materials, 5(3), https://doi.org/10.1088/2053-1583/aac479

We demonstrate that γ-InSe and the α, β and γ phases of In2Se3 can be grown epitaxially on ε-GaSe substrates using a physical vapour transport method. By exploiting the temperature gradient within the tube furnace, we can grow selectively different p... Read More about Epitaxial growth of γ-InSe and α, β, and γ-In2Se3 on ε-GaSe.

Controlling the release of indomethacin from glass solutions layered with a rate controlling membrane using fluid-bed processing. Part 1: Surface and cross-sectional chemical analysis (2017)
Journal Article
Dereymaker, A., Scurr, D. J., Steer, E. D., Roberts, C. J., & Van den Mooter, G. (2017). Controlling the release of indomethacin from glass solutions layered with a rate controlling membrane using fluid-bed processing. Part 1: Surface and cross-sectional chemical analysis. Molecular Pharmaceutics, 14(4), 959-973. https://doi.org/10.1021/acs.molpharmaceut.6b01023

Fluid bed coating has been shown to be a suitable manufacturing technique to formulate poorly soluble drugs in glass solutions. Layering inert carriers with a drug–polymer mixture enables these beads to be immediately filled into capsules, thus avoid...
