    WUYEP, E.O., OLUYEMI, G.F., YATES, K. and AKISANYA, A.R. 2018. Geomechanical effects of oilfield chemicals on sand failure in reservoir rocks. Journal of petroleum science and engineering [online], 165, pages 347-357. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.petrol.2018.02.041
    Sand failure may result in the production of formation sand at the same time the formation fluids are being produced. This work examines the effects of some commonly used oilfield chemicals, specifically, biocide, corrosion ...
  • Multivariate analysis of Scotch whisky by total reflection x-ray fluorenscence and chemometric methods: a potential tool in the identification of counterfeits. 

    Shand, Charlie A.; Wendler, Renate; Dawson, Lorna; Yates, Kyari; Stephenson, Hayleigh (Elsevier https://doi.org/10.1016/j.aca.2017.04.041, 2017-05-06)
    SHAND, C.A., WENDLER, R., DAWSON, L., YATES, K. and STEPHENSON, H. 2017. Multivariate analysis of Scotch whisky by total reflection x-ray fluorenscence and chemometric methods: a potential tool in the identification of counterfeits. Analytica chimica acta [online], 976, pages 14-24. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.aca.2017.04.041
    Most methods used in the identification of counterfeit whisky have focused on the profiling of volatile organic congeners determined by gas chromatography. We tested the use of total reflection x-ray fluorescence (TXRF) ...

Oil based drilling fluid waste: an overview on highly reported but less explored sink for environmentally persistent pollutants. IOP conference series: materials science and engineering [online], 195: proceedings of the 3rd structural nano composites conference (NANOSTRUC 2016), 12-15 September 2016, Aberdeen, UK, article ID 012008. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1088/1757-899X/195/1/012008
    Operational discharges of spent drilling fluid, produced water, and accumulated drill cuttings from oil and gas industry are a continuous point source of environmental pollution. To meet the strict environmental standard ...
