Jannie started his career in 1978 as mathematics lecturer to artisans at the Johannesburg Technical College, Johannesburg rising eventually to the level Head of Department Mathematics and Science.  In 1986 he joined the University of the Orange Free State as lecturer, becoming Professor and Head of the Physical Chemistry Section in 2001.   He has a keen interest in science education  His research interest spans the multidisciplinary domains of synthesis of organometallic compounds, porphyrins, phthalocyanines and metal-containing polymers, electrochemistry, kinetics and thermal analysis, catalysis and anticancer drug research.

Abstract

Introduction Fisher Tropsch (FT) reactions involve the reaction between CO and H2 to generate amongst others aliphatic hydrocarbons; it is catalysed by iron and promoted by copper supported on a solid support. Industrial... [ view full abstract ]
