University of Johannesburg
Prof SO Oluwafemi is a National Research Foundation (NRF), South Africa rated researcher at the department of Applied Chemistry, University of Johannesburg. His research is in the broad area of nanotechnology and include green synthesis of semiconductor and metal nanomaterials for different applications which include but not limited to biological (Imaging, labeling, therapeutic-PDT and PTT), optical, environmental and water treatment. He has author and co-author many journal publications, book chapter and books. He is a reviewer for many international journals in the field of nanotechnology and has won many accolades both local and internationaldifferent way of focusing.
nanotechnology and include synthesis of II –VI and I-III-V semiconductor nanomaterials and nanostructures such as quantum dots, metal nanomaterials, core-shells, doped nanostructures and polymer nanocomposites for different applications which include but not limited to biological, basically for cancer treatment (Imaging, labelling, drug delivery photodynamic therapy and photothermal therapy), optical (development of device e.g diode, solar cells, battery and nanosensors), environmental (sensing and determination of environmental pollutant) and Nanotoxicology. Indigenous knowledge system (IKS) for value added chain using different South African medicinal plants. This involves isolation, extraction, biological activity testing, synthesis of nanomaterial using the plant extract and packaging for pharmaceutical purposes."
