The effect of co-crystallization and polymorphism on the physicochemical properties of amoxicillin tri-hydrate
(University of the Western Cape, 2013)
Many active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) have poor physicochemical properties such as solubility, dissolution and chemical stability. Several strategies are used to enhance and improve these properties of the API. ...
Growth and characterization of FeSi nanowires by chemical vapor deposition for gas sensing applications
(University of the Western Cape, 2014)
FeSi nanowires were synthesized via a chemical vapor deposition method. Anhydrous FeCl3 powder in this case served as the Fe source and was evaporated at a temperature of 1100oC to interact with silicon substrates which ...
Synthesis and characterisation of 114Cd targets
To study nuclear reactions and nuclear structures, target materials are bombarded with high-energy particles. The target material can either be in a form of a metal film or gas. A target material designed to study certain ...
Nanostructured light weight hydrogen storage materials
(University of the Western Cape, 2012)
The main objective of this study was to advance kinetic performances of formation and decomposition of magnesium hydride by design strategies which include high energy ball milling in hydrogen (HRBM), in combination with ...
