Low temperature tungsten trioxide nano/micro-systems for applications in gas sensing and electrochromism
In this work we primarily set out to investigate the technique of Aqueous Chemical Growth as a means of producing WO3 thin films that find applications in gas sensing and electrochromism. For the first time we demonstrated ...
The design of ultrasensitive immunosensors based on a new multi-signal amplification gold nanoparticles-dotted 4-nitrophenylazo functionalised graphene sensing platform for the determination of deoxynivalenol
(University of Western Cape, 2014)
A highly dispersive gold nanoparticle-dotted 4-nitrophenylazo functionalised graphene nanocomposite (AuNp/G/PhNO2) was successfully synthesised and applied in enhancing sensing platform signals. Three label-free ...
Nanocomposite immunosensor for anti-transglutaminase antibody
(University of the Western Cape, 2009)
Coeliac disease (CD) is a gluten intolerance condition that results in the flattening of the villi, which line the bowel. It is the most common cause of malabsorption of food nutrients. This inability to absorb sufficient ...
Synthesis and electrochemistry of novel conducting dendrimeric star copolymers on poly(propylene imine) dendrimer
(University of the Western Cape, 2011)
One of the most powerful aspects of conducting polymers is their ability to be nanostructured through innovative, synthetically manipulated, transformations, such as to tailor-make the polymers for specialized applications. ...
Protein phosphatase biosensor for the detection of cyanotoxins associated with algal bloom
The toxicity of microcystin is associated with the inhibition of serine/threonine protein phosphatases 1 and 2A, which can lead to hepatocyte necrosis and haemorrhage. Analysis of microcystin is most commonly carried out ...
