One of the things that is exciting in nanotechnology 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 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 include:
Organic synthesis: Stereoselective and biochemical synthesis, and small molecule-DNA interaction.
Polymer synthesis: Solution and surface living controlled free radical polymerization: Reversible addition fragmentation and termination-RAFT
Nanofilms or thin films: SAMS and Langmuir-Blodgett technique
