High capacity surface route discharge at the potassium-O2 electrode (2018)
Journal Article
Chen, Y., Jovanov, Z. P., Gao, X., Liu, J., Holc, C., Johnson, L. R., & Bruce, P. G. (2018). High capacity surface route discharge at the potassium-O2 electrode. Journal of Electroanalytical Chemistry, 819, doi:10.1016/j.jelechem.2018.03.041

Discharge by a surface route at the cathode of an aprotic metal-O2 battery typically results in surface passivation by the non-conducting oxide product. This leads to low capacity and early cell death. Here we investigate the cathode discharge reacti... Read More

Kinetics of lithium peroxide oxidation by redox mediators and consequences for the lithium–oxygen cell (2018)
Journal Article
Chen, Y., Gao, X., Johnson, L. R., & Bruce, P. G. (in press). Kinetics of lithium peroxide oxidation by redox mediators and consequences for the lithium–oxygen cell. Nature Communications, 9, doi:10.1038/s41467-018-03204-0. ISSN 2041-1723

Lithium–oxygen cells in which lithium peroxide forms in solution rather than on the electrode surface, can sustain relatively high cycling rates but require redox mediators to charge. The mediators are oxidised at the electrode surface and then oxidi... Read More

Integrative pathway genomics of lung function and airflow obstruction (2015)
Journal Article
Gharib, S. A., Loth, D. W., Soler Artigas, M., Birkland, T. P., Wilk, J. B., Wain, L. V., …London, S. J. (2015). Integrative pathway genomics of lung function and airflow obstruction. Human Molecular Genetics, 24(23), doi:10.1093/hmg/ddv378. ISSN 0964-6906

Chronic respiratory disorders are important contributors to the global burden of disease. Genome-wide association studies (GWASs) of lung function measures have identified several trait-associated loci, but explain only a modest portion of the phenot... Read More

Large-scale genome-wide association studies and meta-analyses of longitudinal change in adult lung function (2014)
Journal Article
Chen, L., Tang, W., Kowgier, M., Loth, D. W., Soler Artigas, M., Joubert, B. R., …Cassano, P. A. (2014). Large-scale genome-wide association studies and meta-analyses of longitudinal change in adult lung function. PLoS ONE, 9(7), doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0100776. ISSN 1932-6203

Background: Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified numerous loci influencing cross-sectional lung function, but less is known about genes influencing longitudinal change in lung function. Methods: We performed GWAS of the rate of cha... Read More

Genome-wide association analysis identifies six new loci associated with forced vital capacity (2014)
Journal Article
Loth, D. W., Artigas, M. S., Gharib, S. A., Wain, L. V., Franceschini, N., Koch, B., …London, S. J. (2014). Genome-wide association analysis identifies six new loci associated with forced vital capacity. Nature Genetics, 46(7), doi:10.1038/ng.3011. ISSN 1061-4036

Forced vital capacity (FVC), a spirometric measure of pulmonary function, reflects lung volume and is used to diagnose and monitor lung diseases. We performed genome-wide association study meta-analysis of FVC in 52,253 individuals from 26 studies an... Read More
