  • Windvoel, VT; Mbanjwa, MB; Land, K (European Cells & Materials Ltd, 2010)
    Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) has a hydrophobic surface, forming a contact angle of around 110º with deionised water. It is due to its hydrophobic nature that the elastomer is prone to bio-fouling, such as non-specific ...
  • Land, K; Schneider, F; Potgieter, S; Korvink, JG (2009-09)
    Microfluidic systems require numerous control valves in order to function properly. These valves form the basic unit of fluid handling within the microfluidic system. Many different valves have been designed and manufactured, ...
  • Windvoel, T; Mbanjwa, M; Mokone, N; Mogale, A; Land, K (World Academy of Sciences, Engineering and Technology, 2010-01)
    The interest in the analysis of biological materials surfaces has grown both academically and industrially. This is because the applications for surfaces in contact with biological materials have also increased. These ...
  • Chen, H; Botef, I; Guduri, B; Vallabhapurapu, S (2009-12)
    The authors consider Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) as a prospective structural material candidate for a Micro Fuel Cell. The introduction of such a polymer as structural material will reduce the mass and the size of the micro ...
  • Chen, H; Botef, I; Zheng, H; Maaza, M; Vasudeva Rao, V; Srinivasu, VV (Inderscience Publishers, 2011)
    Carbon black filled Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) was considered as a prospective bipolar plate material candidate for a Fuel Cell. In this perspective, thermal conductivity and stability of the composites were investigated. ...
