  • Chemical profile and sensory properties of different foods cooked by a new radiofrequency oven 

    Fiore, Alberto; Di Monaco, Rossella; Cavella, Silvana; Visconti, Attilio; Karneili, Ohad; Bernhardt, Sam; Fogliano, Vicenzo (Elsevier, 2013-08-15)
    Radio frequency (RF) heating has been used for numerous applications in the food industry such as baking, thawing or pasteurisation. It reduces cooking time, and it helps to retain acceptable food colour and texture. In ...
  • Chemical surface modified-activated carbon cloth for catalytic wet peroxide oxidation of phenol 

    Martínez, Fernando; Pariente, Isabel; Brebou, Christina; Molina, R.; Melero, Juan Antonio; Bremner, David H.; Mantzavinos, Dionissios (Wiley, 2014-08)
    Activated carbons (AC) can be used as catalyst in advanced oxidation processes due to the potential activity for hydrogen peroxide decomposition to hydroxyl radicals. Chemical surface groups and textural properties can ...
  • Chemistry driven by suction 

    Wu, Zhilin; Ondruschka, Bernd; Zhang, Yongchun; Bremner, David H.; Shen, Haifeng; Franke, Marcus (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2009)
    The use of suction rather than positive pressure hydrodynamic cavitation is suggested as an energy efficient green technology. The restriction orifice for creating hydrodynamic cavitation is fixed on the suction side of ...
  • The chemistry of ultrasonic degradation of organic compounds 

    Bremner, David H.; Burgess, Arthur E.; Chand, Rashmi (Bentham Science Publishers, 2011-01)
    The destruction of toxic organic molecules using advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) is a potent tool for pollution control and environmental protection. Ultrasound is a convenient and effective method of generating hydroxyl ...
  • Child-directed speech prosody in adolescents: relationship to 2D:4D, empathy, and attitudes towards children. 

    Kempe, Vera (Elsevier, 2009-10)
    This study explores how 2D:4D digit ratio, Empathising Quotient (EQ), and child-related attitudes are linked to prosodic characteristics of child-directed speech (CDS) in childless adolescents. Pitch, pitch range, and ...
  • Children’s early acquisition of the passive: evidence from syntactic priming 

    Thatcher, Katherine; Branigan, Holly P.; McLean, Janet F.; Sorace, Antonella (University of Reading, 2008)
    We report an experiment that examined 3- and 4-year-old children’s representation of the passive structure. Early studies of typically-developing children’s acquisition of the passive suggest that this construction is ...
  • Children’s perception of uncanny human-like virtual characters 

    Tinwell, Angela; Sloan, Robin J. S. (Elsevier, 2014-07)
    The Uncanny Valley phenomenon predicts that humans will be less accepting, to the point of rejection, of synthetic agents with a human-like appearance. This is due to a perception of a strangeness or difference in how those ...
  • Chips with everything: coding as performance and the aesthetics of constraint 

    McAlpine, Kenneth B. (2016-04)
    Constraint has always been a powerful driver for musical creativity. Every culture expresses shared ideas about musicality. Arguably, it is the role of the musician both to satisfy and to challenge these ideas by extrapolating ...
  • Choreographing emotional facial expressions 

    Sloan, Robin J. S.; Robinson, Brian; Scott-Brown, Kenneth C.; Moore, Fhionna R.; Cook, Malcolm (Wiley-Blackwell, 2010-05)
    While much is known about the appearance and human perception of emotional facial expressions, researchers and professionals experience difficulties when attempting to create believable animated characters. Methods for ...
  • A circular harmonic quantized amplitude compensated matched filter 

    Zhang, H.; Wang, Z. Q.; Cartwright, Colin M.; Ding, M. S.; Cook, N. J.; Gillespie, W. A. (Elsevier, 1998)
    The circular harmonic expansion technique has been applied to the quantized amplitude-compensated matched filter for rotation-invariant recognition. The filter is an amplitude filter with three discrete grey levels. The ...
