Synthesis, electrodynamics and biosensor applications of novel sulphonated polyaniline nanocomposites
(University of the Western Cape, 2007)
The overall aim of this thesis was to prepare nanostructured more processable heteronuclear sulphonated polyanyline nanocomposites with electroconductive properties suitable for applications in biosensors. The sulphonated ...
Spectroelectrochemical determination of the antioxidant properties of carpobrotus mellei and carpobrotus quadrifidus natural products
South African Carpobrotus species have been found to contain hydrolysable tannins,various flavonoids e.g. rutin and hyperoside, phytosterols and aromatic acids which have a diverse range of pharmacological properties ...
Synthesis and electrochemical characterisation of conducting polyaniline-fly ash matrix composites
The aim of this study was to produce useful composite materials from fly ash, a major waste product of coal combustion from power plants. Polyaniline-fly ash (PANI-FA) composites were prepared by in situ polymerisation of ...
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 ...
