Figure 1 describes the formation process of the DN hydrogels via in situ free-radical polymerization, which is in the presence of A A and NIPAM
with GO and clay as crosslinkers and reinforcing fillers.
ii)Enroll 2 additional NIPAM staff members in selected postgraduate training programmes;
iv)Attach at least 3 NIPAM staff members to partner institutions for research and programme development for a period of up to 3 months per person;
When officially inaugurating NIPAM in February 2011, His Excellency Hifikepunye Pohamba, the President of the Republic of Namibia, expressed concerns at the perception among some members of the public that the civil service is not addressing their concerns effectively and efficiently.
AFM images and XPS results clearly revealed that the PMMA grafted from silicon substrates have the ability lo extend the chains by sequential addition of NIPAM
NIPAM was launched in 2011 to augment the country's skills-base and equip decision-makers to play a pivotal role in transforming Namibia into a knowledge-based economy.
In its 2013 prospectus, NIPAM offers courses for middle, senior and executive managers, focusing on leadership development and management skills, governance, local economic development, finance, fraud prevention and ethics.
Whether you are a secretary looking to improve your skills, or the manager of an SOE wishing to embark on a new course, the NIPAM prospectus 2013 offers a great opportunity to develop your skill-set and make an impact on Namibia's development," Nghikembua said.
The studied polymers were prepared with AM, NIPAM, and DOAM plus a hydrophobic initiator derived from 4,4'-azobis(4-cya-nopentanoic acid) (ACVA) which consists of a long linear chain of 16 carbon atoms ([ACVA.
Separately, the hydrophilic monomers AM and/or NIPAM were dissolved in a round bottom flask with 80 wt% of total reaction water; the initiator ACVA was dissolved in a round flask with the rest of water (20 wt%), both systems were purged with nitrogen during 30 min.
NIPAM trainers are working hand-in hand with international experts over a three-year period, fine tuning and presenting the courses, and will take over the programmes after this initial capacity building period.
NIPAM concentrates on capacity building in the public sector.
