Research: Beyond the limits of innovation

Advanced Functional Nanopecochemical Synthesis

One of the things that is exciting in nanoscience, nanotechnology, nanopicoscience and picotechnology is its multi-disciplinary nature. Research at inter-face between physical, biological, agricultural, medical and engineering sciences is key to the success of any nanoscience and nanotechnology program. The gathering of scientists across disciplines, institutions and nations to brain-storm a scientific problem is the hallmark of scientific discovery in what is called 'nanobasket'. Functional nanopecochemical synthesis is the engine driving interface science today. Focus Nanotechnology Africa Inc. (FONAI) research includes:


  1. Nanorganic synthesis: Nanostereoselective and biochemical synthesis, and nanomolecule-DNA-RNA-protein interaction-inhibitors-chemo-gene-therapy
  2. Nanopolymer synthesis: Solution and surface living controlled free radical polymerization: Reversible addition fragmentation and termination-RAFT
  3. Nanofilms or thin films: SAMS and Langmuir-Blodgett technique
  4. Nanopicochemical:Nanocomposites, carbon nanotubes, 
  5. Nanocomplex: Nanoelectronics, nanointernet of things, nanosensors nanoartificial intelligence
  6. Nanosurface modification
  7. Nanodevices: Sensors and molecular recognition
  8. Nanomanufacuring: Processes, phenomena, modelling, stimulation and scale-up
  9. Nanomedicine,nanobiotechnology and nanoagriculture: Malaria, cancer, tumor, HIV/AID, molecular engineering, diseases detection in plants,nanochemo-gene-therapy

  10. Initiating nanoscience and nanotechnology in the 189 countries of US-North America,EU, Africa, Asia and Caribbean
