High-resolution scanning electron microscopy (HRSEM) reveals a microstructure showing predominantly flattish rod like particles. Energy dispersive xray (EDX) shows high percentage levels of Al, Mg and Si with potential to form organometallic compounds. The presence of amino groups would form a linkage entry of the enzyme into MT.cellulosic surface hydroxyl groups. Maize tassel (MT) has shown its potential to adsorb trace metals from aqueous solution [2-4]. But before MT can be put into use in biosensor development, its characteristics properties such as morphology, dispersion and adsorption trends need to be known. In the current study, we present the aforementioned properties of MT. It is anticipated that these factors would enhance the integration and coordinated participation of the enzyme during catalysis.]]> Wed 24 Mar 2021 14:19:25 SAST ]]> Improved derivatisation methods for the determination of free cyanide and cyanate in mine effluent. http://tutvital.tut.ac.za:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/tut:5952 Wed 24 Mar 2021 13:41:11 SAST ]]> Biosorption of toxic metals: The potential use of maize tassel for the removal of Pb(II) from aqueous solutions. http://tutvital.tut.ac.za:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/tut:5780 Tue 15 Jun 2021 10:23:52 SAST ]]> Biosorption of Pb(II) from aqueous solution using Rooibos shoot powder (RSP). http://tutvital.tut.ac.za:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/tut:5777 Tue 09 Mar 2021 08:54:32 SAST ]]> Determination of DDT and Metabolites in Surface Water and Sediment Using LLE, SPE, ACE, and SE. http://tutvital.tut.ac.za:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/tut:1577 Tue 06 Mar 2018 09:26:08 SAST ]]> Improved derivatisation methods for the determination of free cyanide and cyanate in mine effluent. http://tutvital.tut.ac.za:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/tut:5776 Tue 02 Mar 2021 11:52:40 SAST ]]> Application of maize tassel for the removal of Pb, Se, Sr, U and V from borehole water contaminated with mine wastewater in the presence of alkaline metals. http://tutvital.tut.ac.za:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/tut:4212 Thu 20 Sep 2018 12:18:19 SAST ]]> Physicochemical Characterization of Maize Tassel as an Adsorbent.
