    • Application of nanoparticles in biofuels: an overview 

      Sekoai, Patrick T.; Ouma, Cecil Naphtaly Moro; Du Preez, Stephanus Petrus; Modisha, Phillimon; Engelbrecht, Nicolaas; Bessarabov, Dmitri G. (Elsevier, 2019)
      Biofuels are fast advancing as alternative sources of renewable energy due to their non-polluting features and cost-competitiveness in comparison to fossil fuels. However, in order to fast-track their development, focus ...
    • Modelling nanoparticles parameters for antimicrobial activity 

      Razanamahandry, L.C.; Ntwampe, S.K.O.; Bashir, A.K.H.; Kaviyarasu, K.; Mekuto, Lukhanyo (Springer, 2020)
      The current study reveals the antimicrobial activity of various nanoparticles (NPs) against numerous microorganisms through statistical models that define suitable parameters to improve the antimicrobial efficacy of NPs. ...
    • Photocatalytic degradation of azo and rhodamine dyes using copper (ii) oxide nanoparticles 

      Mbu, Etchu E.; Malenga, Edward; Fosso-Kankeu, Elvis; Dodoo-Arhin, David; Ntwampe, Seteno K. (EARET, 2018)
      Fresh water pollution by dyes from various industries is raising a lot of concern lately. Despite their well-known toxicity to humans, azo dyes make up over half of the used dye population. Rhodamines are also a well-used ...
    • Simultaneous removal of pollutants from water using nanoparticles: a shift from single pollutant control to multiple pollutant control 

      Hlongwane, Gloria Ntombenhle; Sekoai, Patrick Thabang; Meyyappan, Meyya; Moothi, Kapil (Elsevier, 2019)
      The steady increase in population, coupled with the rapid utilization of resources and continuous development of industry and agriculture has led to excess amounts of wastewater with changes in its composition, texture, ...
