  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Forbes, Shari; Stuart, Barbara; Dadour, Ian; Dent, Boyd (Amer Soc Testing Materials, 2004)
    Adipocere is a postmortem decomposition porduct which forms from a body's adipose tissue. This study aimed to chemically demonstrate the process of conversion from adipose tissue to adipocere. Samples of adipocere were ...
  • Notter, Stephanie; Stuart, Barbara; Dent, Boyd; Keegan, Jim (Wiley - V C H Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, 2008)
    Current research investigating the effect of specific aquatic microenvironments on the formation of adipocere using domesticated pigs (Sus scrofa) has demonstrated the need for a fact and reliable method to separate and ...
  • Stuart, Barbara; Forbes, Shari; Dent, Boyd (Humana Press, 2005)
    Attenuated total reflectance (ATR) infrared spectroscopy has been used to characterise pig adipocere formation. The composition of adipocere samples obtained by burial of pig adipocere tissue in soil and in mock coffins ...
