      Carbon dioxide storage in olivine basalts: Effect of ball milling process 

      Rigopoulos, Ioannis; Petallidou, Klito C.; Vasiliades, Michalis A.; Delimitis, Andréas; Ioannou, Ioannis; Efstathiou, Angelos M.; Kyratsi, Theodora (2015)
      The goal of this study is to propose a cost-effective method for the optimization of the ex situ carbonation of basaltic rocks. The ball milling process was applied to a sample of olivine basalt from the Troodos ophiolite ...

      Combined chemical and optical methods for monitoring the early decay stages of surrogate human models 

      Statheropoulos, Miltiades K.; Agapiou, Agapios; Zorba, Eleni; Mikedi, Katerina; Karma, Sofia; Pallis, George C.; Eliopoulos, C.; Spiliopoulou, C. (2011)
      As the body decays shortly after death, a variety of gases and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) constantly emanate. Ethical and practical reasons limit the use of human corpses in controlled, time-dependent, intervening ...

      Environmental aspects of VOCs evolved in the early stages of human decomposition 

      Statheropoulos, Miltiades K.; Agapiou, Agapios; Spiliopoulou, C.; Pallis, George C.; Sianos, Efstathios (2007)
      In the present study, the time profile, measured as "accumulation", of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) produced during the early stages of human decomposition was investigated. A human cadaver was placed in a sealed bag ...

      A study of volatile organic compounds evolved from the decaying human body 

      Statheropoulos, Miltiades K.; Spiliopoulou, C.; Agapiou, Agapios (2005)
      Two men were found dead near the island of Samos, Greece, in the Mediterranean sea. The estimated time of death for both victims was 3-4 weeks. Autopsy revealed no remarkable external injuries or acute poisoning. The exact ...

      The trapped human experiment 

      Huo, R.; Agapiou, Agapios; Bocos-Bintintan, V.; Brown, L. J.; Burns, C.; Creaser, C. S.; Devenport, N. A.; Gao-Lau, B.; Guallar-Hoyas, C.; Hildebrand, L.; Malkar, A.; Martin, H. J.; Moll, V. H.; Patel, P.; Ratiu, A.; Reynolds, J. C.; Sielemann, S.; Slodzynski, R.; Statheropoulos, Miltiades K.; Turner, M. A.; Vautz, W.; Wright, V. E.; Thomas, Charles Lawrence Paul (2011)
      This experiment observed the evolution of metabolite plumes from a human trapped in a simulation of a collapsed building. Ten participants took it in turns over five days to lie in a simulation of a collapsed building and ...
