Thriving for greater things: VUT MTech in Chemistry Graduate

Phindile Mthombo hails from Zonkizizwe in Katlehong and is now a master’s graduate in Chemistry. She graduated from the Vaal University of Technology under the thesis title: ‘he preparation of Iron oxide-silica nanofibers for the degradation of methylene blue.’

Phindile’s study contributes knowledge of synthetic dyes and how toxic they can be when discarding in rivers and dams. They contribute about 33% of water pollution. Her study also contributes in giving understanding in ways of degrading these dyes in water, as part of water purification.

Very honoured to reach this far, for Phindile this achievement means that nothing is impossible.

For the future, Phindile plans to keep striving forward for greater things and opportunities. “If I did it, then you too can do it.  There is nothing new under the sun,” she advises.

Phindile survives by the motto: “The Lord is my Sheppard, I shall not want”, Psalm 23 verse 1

Her studies were funded by the NRF and Sasol: “I ’m forever grateful,” she says.

Phindile is currently looking for employment.
