Galvanic electrocatalytic layers in water alkali electrolysis
The aim of this project is development of an efficient electrocatlyst for cathodic hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) in an alkaline environement based on galvanic modification of the Ni substrate. After identification of the optimal coatings properties and deposition method the techniques will be transferred to the 3D porous electrodes to enhance process efficiency and tested in a laboratory and pilot scale alkaline water electrolysis cell.
Non-Traditional Yeasts with Potential to Produce Special Fermented Beverages
Today's beer market is very diverse and all producers are looking for ways to differentiate themselves. The aim of this work will be to find such yeasts that could be used for fermentation and at the same time provide an interesting and unique aroma of the final product in comparison with normal fermented beer. A secondary goal will be the search for a strain of microorganisms usable for the production of non-alcoholic beer.
Optimization of Electrochemical Ferrates(VI) Synthesis
The aim of this project is characterization of chemical and electrochemical oxidation processes taking place at the surface of an anode made of iron based materials in strongly alkaline solutions. Deeper understanding of mechanism of these processes allows to enhance efficiency of synthesis of Ferrate (VI) making it economically viable.
