  • Mapossa, António Benjamim; Moyo, Dennis Simbarashe; Wesley-Smith, James; Focke, Walter Wilhelm; Androsch, Rene (American Institute of Physics, 2020-11)
    FTIR, in ATR and in transmission modes, enabled the tracking of the migration of the insecticide Chlorfenapyr to the surface of a polymer film. It also allowed estimation of the apparent solubility in the polymer. However, ...

    Malaria remains a public health concern with vector control still the vital component of disease prevention, control, and elimination strategies. Recent years has seen a “stalling” in the progress made towards the reduction ...
  • Sitoe, Alcides; Mapossa, António Benjamim; Focke, Walter Wilhelm; Muiambo, Herminio; Androsch, René; Wesley-Smith, James (Wiley, 2020-12)
    Nanocomposite strands with mosquito repellent DEET or Icaridin incorporated in a poly(ethylene-co-vinyl acetate) (EVA) matrix, with either pyrogenic silica or an organoclay as a nanofiller, were prepared by a twin-screw ...
  • Pretorius, Franco; Focke, Walter Wilhelm; Androsch, Rene; Du Toit, Elizabeth Louisa (Elsevier, 2021-04)
    A comprehensive review of refractive index mixing rules of binary solutions is presented. All published mixing rules, with the exception of the Wiener mixing rule, can be reformulated into expressions with a linear dependence ...
  • Mapossa, António Benjamim; Focke, Walter Wilhelm; Sitoe, Alcides; Androsch, Rene (American Institute of Physics, 2020-11)
    Pyrogenic silica and organoclay nanocomposite strands containing liquid mosquito repellents were prepared by twinscrew extrusion compounding. The mosquito repellents DEET and Icaridin were immobilized in the pores of a ...

  • Izadi, Homa; Focke, Walter Wilhelm; Asaadi, Erfan; Maharaj, Rajendra; Pretorius, Jannie; Loots, Mattheus Theodor (Nature Publishing Group, 2017-08-31)
    Topical repellents play a key role in reducing the outdoor transmission of mosquito-borne diseases by reducing human-vector contact. Excellent repellents are available, but there is always room for improvement. This ...
