  • Sinha Ray, S (Woodhead Publishing Limited, 2013-07)
    In recent years, the development of eco-friendly polymeric materials with balanced properties has become a subject of research attention due to concerns with increasing global-warming, carbon-emission, and limited natural ...
  • Gottsmann, D; Osman, A (2010-05)
    The study presents a design for this catalyst as a possible generic solution – with specific application in the context of Mamelodi Township near Pretoria in South Africa. The design makes provision for the informal economic ...
  • Malwela, T; Ray, SS (Elsevier, 2015-06)
    Films of a biodegradable PLA/PBSA blend and blend-composites containing 2 wt% of C20A, C30B and MEE were prepared by solvent casting and spin coating. The films were incubated in vials containing Tris–HCl buffer with ...
  • Juma, WP; Chhiba, Varsha P; Brady, D; Bode, ML (Elsevier, 2017-09)
    Racemic Morita-Baylis-Hillman adducts derived from the reaction of acrylonitrile with benzaldehyde, cinnamaldehyde and hydrocinnamaldehyde have been successfully resolved by means of enzymatic kinetic resolution. The ...
  • Rashamuse, KJ; Mutambanengwe, CCZ; Whiteley, CG (Academic Journals, 2008-04)
    It has been established that dissolved heavy metals escaping into the environment pose a serious health hazard. As a result, there is an urgent need for controlling metal emissions into the environment. The aims of this ...
  • Chhiba, V; Bode, M; Mathiba, K; Brady, D (Wiley, 2014-06)
    The use of enzymes for the enantioselective synthesis of single enantiomer ß-subsituted compounds is of interest, as this structural motif occurs commonly in compounds of pharmaceutical importance, such as adrenergic agents, ...
  • Visser, Daniel F; Gordon, GER; Bode, ML; Mathiba, K; Brady, D (Wiley-Blackwell, 2012-05)
    5-Methyluridine (5-MU) is an intermediate in the synthesis of ß-thymidine and the antiretroviral drugs stavudine (d4T) and zidovudine (AZT)1-3. The enzymatic preparation of 5-MU involves transglycosylation4-6 and avoids ...
  • Roman, HJ; Burgess, JE; Pletschke, BI (Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 2006-05)
    The aim of anaerobic digestion of primary sewage sludge is to convert the carbonaceous material contained in the solids into methane and carbon dioxide. The products of digestion are therefore gases, stabilised sludge ...
  • Le Rouw, Wouter J; Du Preez, M; De Klerk, L; Hohls, D; McFerren, G; Vahed, A; Van der Merwe, Martina R; Van Zyl, T (Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, 2013)
    EO2HEAVEN has the primary objective to contribute to a better understanding of the complex relationships between environmental changes and their impact on human health. To achieve this, the project followed a multidisciplinary ...
  • Fossey, A (National Inquiry Services Centre (NISC), 2009-06)
    Gene regulatory processes lead to differential gene expression and are referred to as epigenetic phenomena; these are ubiquitous processes in the biological world. These reversible heritable changes concern DNA and RNA, ...
  • Phala, N; Garland, Rebecca M; Thambiran, Tirusha; Naidoo, M; Padayachi, Y (2012-10)
    Air pollution and the related health problems facing South Africa today are a unique blend of those faced by both developing and developed countries. Poor air quality is a concern in many parts of the country, potentially ...
  • Ndlovu, GF; Roos, WD; Wang, ZM; Asante, JKO; Mashapa, MG; Jafta, C; Mwakikunga, BW; Hillie, KT (Springer, 2012-03)
    The growth of three-dimensional ultra-fine spherical nano-particles of silver on few layers of graphene derived from highly oriented pyrolytic graphite in ultra-high vacuum were characterized using in situ scanning tunneling ...
  • Kesavan Pillai, Sreejarani; Ray, S (IntechOpen, 2011-04)
    Epoxy or polyepoxide is a thermosetting epoxide polymer that cures (polymerizes and cross-links) when mixed with a curing agent or "hardener". Most common epoxy resins are produced from a reaction between epichlorohydrin ...

  • Bassa, H; Konrad, T; Diósi, L; Uys, Hermann (Elsevier, 2017-08)
    We study the convergence properties of state estimates of an oscillating qubit being monitored by a sequence of discrete, unsharp measurements. Our method derives a differential equation determining the evolution of the ...
  • Booth, R; Meyer, T (2008-09)
    In studies of multi-agent interaction, especially in game theory, the notion of equilibrium often plays a prominent role. A typical scenario for the belief merging problem is one in which several agents pool their beliefs ...
