  • Tichapondwa, Shepherd Masimba; Tshemese, Siyabulela; Mhike, Washington (The Italian Association of Chemical Engineering, 2018)
    Phenol and Cr(VI) are two of the most common organic and heavy metal-based pollutants found in industrial effluents. Both pollutants pose considerable health risks if left untreated. Activated carbon adsorption is generally ...
  • Sibanda, Mthokozisi Mayibongwe; Focke, Walter Wilhelm; Braack, L.E.O.; Leuteritz, Andreas; Brünig, Harald; Tran, Nguyen Hoai An; Wieczorek, Florian; Trümper, Wolfgang (Elsevier, 2018-10)
    Core-sheath structured fibres were developed for application as part of an alternative malaria vector control intervention aimed at reducing outdoor malaria transmission. The fibres were prepared by melt spinning of high ...
  • Atanasova, Maria T.; Vyalikh, Anastasia; Scheler, Ulrich; Focke, Walter Wilhelm (Elsevier, 2016-06)
    Three rectorite samples from the Beatrix Gold Mine, South Africa were characterized. Scanning electron microscopy revealed a layered morphology. High resolution transmission microscopy showed well distinguished light and ...
  • Naseem, Sajid; Lonkar, Sunil P.; Leuteritz, Andreas; Labuschagne, F.J.W.J. (Frederick Johannes Willem Jacobus) (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2018)
    In this research, the use of layered double hydroxides (LDHs) as ultraviolet (UV) light-protecting additives for PP is explored. Different LDHs, such as ZnTi, ZnSn, ZnGa, ZnCr and CdCr LDHs, were prepared and their ...
  • Morekhure-Mphahlele, Refilwe; Focke, Walter Wilhelm; Grote, Wiebke; Masuku, Grace M.; Dzikiti, Loveness Nyaradzo; Motlotle, Ntikwe Pene; Ramukumba, Tendani S. (Elsevier, 2018-12)
    The nature of letsoku and related clayey soils, traditionally used by indigenous Southern African communities for a wide range of purposes, was explored. Thirty nine samples were collected from Botswana, Lesotho, Swaziland, ...
  • Badenhorst, Heinrich (Taylor and Francis, 2017-02)
    The deductions regarding the differences and similarities between natural and synthetic graphite would not have been possible without the combination of oxidation and high surface resolution SEM. The true behaviours of ...
  • Mokwatlo, Sekgetho Charles; Nicol, Willie (Elsevier, 2017-12)
    Biofilms of Actinobacillus succinogenes have demonstrated exceptional capabilities as biocatalysts for high productivity, titre, and yield production of succinic acid. This work gauges the effectiveness of these biofilms ...
  • Sahnoune, Mohamed; Kaci, Mustapha; Taguet, Aurélie; Delbé, Karl; Mouffok, Samir; Abdi, Said; Lopez-Cuesta, José-Marie; Focke, Walter Wilhelm (De Gruyter, 2019-01)
    This article reports some morphological, tribological, and mechanical data on polyamide-11(PA11)/halloysite nanotube (HNT) nanocomposites prepared by melt-compounding. HNTs extracted from the Djebel Debbagh deposit in ...
