  • Maharaj, VJ; Senabe, JV; Horak, RM (2008-11)
    An appetite suppressant agent from Hoodia developed by CSIR scientists, promises to become the first natural food ingredient for weight management based on a plant indigenous to the African continent. The research programme ...
  • Visagie, N; Smal, CA (2013-10)
    The influence of hopper geometry on the flow behaviour of typical metallic powders used in additive manufacturing processes is investigated. Bulk hopper theory provides a method of determining critical hopper parameters ...
  • Booth, R; Meyer, T; Varzinczak, I; Wassermann, R (2010-08)
    The authors show that Booth et al.’s Horn contraction based on infra-remainder sets corresponds exactly to kernel contraction for belief sets. This result is obtained via a detour through Horn contraction for belief bases, ...
  • Parsons, SA; Hussey, R; Abbott, GR; De Jager, Peta (International Federation of Hospital Engineering, 2008-10)
    This paper provides an overview of hospital design solutions to accommodate M(X)DR-TB patients and methodologies adopted to fast track the provision of much needed beds in the various high burden provinces in South Africa
  • Meliopoulos, VA; Andersen, LE; Birrer, KF; Simpson, KJ; Lowenthal, JW; Bean, AGD; Stambas, J; Stewart, CR; Tompkins, SM; Van Beusechem, VW; Fraser, I; Mhlanga, Musa; Barichievy, S; Smith, Q; Leake, D; Karpilow, J; Buck, A; Jona, G; Tripp, RA (FASEB, 2012-01)
    Influenza virus encodes only 11 viral proteins but replicates in a broad range of avian and mammalian species by exploiting host cell functions. Genome-wide RNA interference (RNAi) has proven to be a powerful tool for ...
  • Scriba, MR; Britton, DT; Härting, M (Wiley-Blackwell, 2012-11)
    Monocrystalline silicon nanoparticles with a mean diameter of between 30 and 40 nm have been synthesised by hot wire thermal catalytic and spark pyrolysis at a pressure of 40 and 80 mbar respectively. For the production a ...
  • Anochie-Boateng, Joseph; Denneman, E; O'Connell, Johannes S; Mturi, G; Ventura, D (Document Transformation Technologies, 2010-08)
    As part of the revision of the South African Pavement Design Method (SAPDM), a large scale field and laboratory study into the material response of asphalt mixtures will be undertaken. A first step in this process is to ...
  • Cummings, FR; Arendse, CJ; Malgas, GR; Scriba, M; Knoesen, D; Theron, CC (2006-07)
    Owing entirely to their structure, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) possess some of the most remarkable chemical and physical properties. More specifically, they exhibit exceptional strength and toughness, chemical inertness, ...
  • Scriba, MR; Arendse, CJ; Harting, M; Britton, DT (Elsevier, 2008-01)
    The viability of producing silicon nanoparticles using the HWCVD process is investigated. A system is assembled and particles are produced from silane at pressures between 0.2 – 48 mbar, with hydrogen dilutions of 0-80%, ...
  • Ramukhwatho, FR; Du Plessis, R; Oelofse, Suzanna HH (2016-10)
    Food waste is generated throughout the supply chain including at household level. Household waste contains a fairly large percentage of food in developing countries. This study assesses household food wastage in five ...
  • Ramukhwatho, FR; Du Plessis, R; Oelofse, Suzanna HH (2014-10)
    In many developing countries, including those with food shortages a large portion of household waste is estimated to be food. This paper reports on findings of a research study conducted in one of South Africa’s largest ...
  • Oelofse, Suzanna HH; Marx Pienaar, N (2016-10)
    Municipal waste composition studies globally have indicated that significant amounts of food is wasted and disposed while there is potentially significant opportunity to prevent food wastage at household level (Lebersorger ...
  • Sibiya, Mhlupheki G; Ofori-Appiah, Michael; Van Der Walt, Karel A; Tolmay, Jamer P; Alberts, Ronell (2017-09)
    The Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise advocates for the integration of distributed and heterogeneous health information systems. This is achieved through the development of standards that specifies protocols through ...
  • Strydom, Wilma F; Godfrey, Linda K (2016-10)
    In 2010, the CSIR conducted the first national survey on household waste recycling behaviour in South Africa. To assess whether household recycling behaviour has improved over time, the CSIR conducted a second survey in ...
  • Goss, H; Busgeeth, K; Le Roux, Alize (CSIR, 2010-09-01)
