  • 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 ...

  • Green, Cheri A; Mans, Gerbrand G (CSIR, 2008-11)
    The South African constitution affects every citizen's access to basic services and accordingly it has become a legislative requirement for local authorities to prepare integrated development plans (IDPs), develop performance ...
  • Green, Cheri A (2013-09)
    The Government Programme of Action (Outcome 12) requires government departments to develop geographic access norms and to set targets for reducing the distances people have to travel to reach services, where this is ...
  • Prozzi, JA; Sanders, PJ; du Toit, GD; De Beer, Morris (2009-05-26)
    This report describes a new methodology for the determination of Equivalent Damage Factors (EDFs) of vehicles with multiple axle and wheel configurations on pavements. The basic premise of this new procedure is that ...
  • Van Deventer, Martha J (2008-11)
    Most librarians are much less familiar with the data-generating research phases of the scientific research cycle than with post-research. Data science and data management are an awkward fit with the text-oriented constructs ...
  • Churchill, SE; Brink, JS; Berger, LR; Hutchison, RA; Rossouw, L; Stynder, D; Hancox, PJ; Brandt, D; Woodborne, S; Loock, JC; Scott, L; Ungar, P (Bureau Scientific Publications, 2000-04)
    This article provides information on a research on Erfkroon, a Florisian fossil locality from fluvial contexts in the western Free State of South Africa. As well as details on the excavation of gravel bars at the locality; ...
  • Schutte, PC; James, JP (Mine Health and Safety Council, 2007)
    Ergonomic surveys are conducted to identify ergonomics-related risk factors in a workplace. The surveys include elementary hazard identification, risk assessment and identification of areas where specialist ergonomics ...
  • Schutte, S (Finnish Institute of Occupational Health, 2011-04)
