  • Notter, Stephanie; Stuart, Barbara; Dent, Boyd; Langlois, Neil (Coimbra University Press, 2010)
    Adipocere is a late post-mortem decomposition product that consists of a mixture of fatty acids. The rate of formation of adipocere in a river water environment has been monitored. Adipocere formed from pig adipose tissue ...
  • Stuart, Barbara (Pergamon-elsevier Science Ltd, 1997)
    This paper reviews the use of Fourier transform Raman spectroscopy for investigations in polymer tribology. In particular, a number of studies dealing with the problem of surface plasticisation in engineering polymers have ...
  • Stuart, Barbara (Elsevier Sci Ltd, 1998)
    This paper reviews the use of Raman spectroscopy for investigations in polymer tribology, In particular, a number of studies dealing with the problem of surface plasticisation in engineering polymers have been reported and ...
  • Nissen, Kristen; Stuart, Barbara; Stevens, Michael; Baker, Tony (John Wiley & Sons, 2008)
    Aminated poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) surfaces were charcterised for their use as substrates for the attachment of biologically active molecules. Amines of different chain lengths, tetraethylenementamine, ...
  • Ip, Kin Hong; Stuart, Barbara; Thomas, Paul; Ray, A (Elsevier Inc, 2011)
    Polymer composites comprised of poly(vinyl alcohol) and montmorillonite with higher clay loadings have been prepared and characterised. The extent of intercalation in the composites was examined over a range of compositions ...
  • Ip, Kin Hong; Stuart, Barbara; Ray, Abhi (Elsevier, 2003)
    "Yellow block" sandstone, a colloquial expression used for a locally quarried variety of sandstone, has made an important contribution to the cultural and architectural heritage of Australia's largest city, Sydney. The ...
  • Forbes, Shari; Stuart, Barbara; Dent, Boyd; Fenwick-Mulcahy, Sarah (Amer Soc Testing Materials, 2005)
    Adipocere is a soft white substance formed postmortem from fatty tissue in a decomposing body. In this preliminary study the formation of adipocere in soil was investigated for a number of animal species. Adipocere was ...
  • Stuart, Barbara; Notter, Stephanie; Langlois, Neil; Maynard, Philip; Ray, Abhi; Berkahn, Mark (Blackwell Publishing, 2007)
    The unusual appearance of crystalline fat structures was observed during the postmortem examination of a motor vehicle accident victim. The crystal structures were characterized using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy ...
  • Briscoe, Brian; Stuart, Barbara; Thomas, Paul; Williams, Diana (Pergamon-elsevier Science Ltd, 1991)
    The paper describes a study of the application of Fourier transform Raman spectroscopy as a means of identifying the extent of the surface plasticisation of a poly(ether ether ketone) by a known plasticising solvent, ...
  • Yang, Liu; Thomas, Paul; Stuart, Barbara (Akademiai Kiado Rt, 2012)
    The potential for differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) as a tool for the discrimination of forensic polymer specimens is investigated for a series of commercial low density polyethylene (LDPE) samples. Variation in the ...
  • Thomas, Paul; Stuart, Barbara (Kluwer Academic Publ, 2003)
    Compression moulded plaques of a range of poly(ether ether ketone) (PEEK)- poly(tetrafluoroethylene) (PTFE) blends (100, 92, 48, 29, 9.5 and 0 mass% PEEK) have been characterised using differential scanning calorimetry ...
  • Notter, Stephanie; Stuart, Barbara (Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2012)
    Adipocere is a postmortem decomposition product that consists of a mixture of fatty acids. The rate of formation of adipocere from pig adipose tissue in an aqueous environment has been monitored. The effect of various ...
  • Lowe, Amanda; Beresford, David; Carter, David; Gaspari, Franco; O'Brien, R.; Stuart, Barbara; Forbes, Shari (Elsevier Inc, 2013)
    There are many factors which affect the rate of decomposition in a grave site including; the depth of burial, climatic conditions, physical conditions of the soil (e.g. texture, pH, moisture), and method of burial (e.g. ...
  • Forbes, Shari; Dent, Boyd; Stuart, Barbara (Elsevier Ireland Ltd, 2005)
    Adipocere refers to a postmortem product which forms from body fat in the later stages of decomposition. Factors present in the surrounding decomposition environment will influence adipocere formation and may accelerate ...
  • Forbes, Shari; Stuart, Barbara; Dent, Boyd (Elsevier Ireland Ltd, 2005)
    Adipocere is a decomposition product comprising predominantly of saturated fatty acids which results from the hydrolysis and hydrogenation of neutral fats in the body. Adipocere formation may occur in various decomposition ...
  • Forbes, Shari; Stuart, Barbara; Dent, Boyd (Elsevier Ireland Ltd, 2005)
    A controlled laboratory experiment was conducted in order to investigate the effect of the method of burial (i.e. the presence of coffin and clothing) on the formation of adipocere. This study follows previous studies by ...
  • Ip, Kin Hong; Stuart, Barbara; Ray, Abhi; Thomas, Paul (Cambridge University Press, 2011)
    The degradation of Sydney sandstone used to build the heritage St Mary's Cathedral in Sydney, Australia, has been investigated using environmental scanning electron microscopy combined with energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy. ...
  • Raja, Sophil; Thomas, Paul; Stuart, Barbara; Guerbois, Jean-Pierre; O'Brien, Christopher (Akademiai Kiado Rt, 2009)
    An accurate means of determining bone age is a goal for forensic scientists. In this study, thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) has been used to examine pig bone specimens of different post-mortem age. Analysis of bone in ...
