This project was conceived in response to the rapid decline in banana (Musa) production experienced in Kenya over the last two decades. The decline was brought about by: infestation with Panama disease or Fusarium wilt caused by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. Cubense (FOC); Black and Yellow sigatoka leaf spot caused by Mycosphaerella fijiensis (Morelet) and(More)
Epoxy-multiwall carbon nanotube nanocomposite thin films were prepared by spin casting. High power air plasma was used to preferentially etch a coating of epoxy and expose the underlying carbon nanotube network. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) examination revealed well distributed and spatially connected carbon nanotube network in both the longitudinal(More)
Composites with carbon nanotubes are becoming increasingly used in energy storage and electronic devices, due to incorporated excellent properties from carbon nanotubes and polymers. Although their properties make them more attractive than conventional smart materials, their electrical properties have been found to be temperature-dependent which is(More)
The focus of the review paper is to discuss how biotechnological innovations are opening new frontiers to mitigate nutrition in key agricultural crops with potential for large-scale health impact to people in Africa. The general objective of the Africa Biofortified Sorghum (ABS) project is to develop and deploy sorghum with enhanced pro-vitamin A to farmers(More)
