Chemistry and Chemical Technologies (double degree)

Chemistry and Chemical Technologies (double degree)

Doctoral programme, Faculty of Chemical Technology

Programme is leading to two diplomas from both home university as well as partner university.

The programme is aimed at cooperation with the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava, (STU Bratislava) and with KU Leuven, Belgium to educate highly qualified professionals at the highest level of higher education (doctoral level), both with advanced theoretical knowledge and practical skills in applied chemistry and chemical technology. Students extend their theoretical knowledge of chemistry, physical chemistry and chemical engineering. This knowledge is further developed by means of an independent professional work in the field of chemical technology, which allows the students to deepen theoretical knowledge and to gain experience with their application in the implementation of a specific technological project. The scientific education further includes a chemical-technological research project that leads to obtaining the original published knowledge of a general nature.


A graduate of the programme is fully qualified to occupy a leading position in the field of design, development and optimization of chemical technologies as well as for the management of chemical operations, distribution and application of chemical products on the market. The graduate is able to assess the environmental impacts of these activities and human health. He/she is also fully prepared and qualified for independent research and development activities in the field of chemical technologies using both a broad theoretical basis, as well as own experience in obtaining experimental and theoretical data, their critical evaluation and processing and drawing conclusions of a general nature.

Galvanic electrocatalytic layers in water alkali electrolysis

Department: Department of Inorganic Technology, Faculty of Chemical Technology
Also available in programme: Chemie a chemické technologie (double degree)
Theses supervisor: Ing. Jaromír Hnát, Ph.D.


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.

Mathematical models of composite materials prepared by dispersing solid particles of a filler in a liquid polymer matrix

Department: Department of Organic Technology, Faculty of Chemical Technology
Theses supervisor: doc. Ing. Pavel Čapek, CSc.


The work is aimed at the mathematical modelling of composite materials, the preparation of which includes the creation of a suspension of solid particles in a liquid mixture of a solvent and a polymer precursor, volume contraction of the suspension caused by evaporating the solvent and by forming a solid polymer matrix. The initial suspension is modelled using the random sequential addition of particles of various shapes. Then, the motion of particles of the filler in the shrinking suspension is simulated. Each model microstructure and the corresponding microstructure of the real composite material sample are characterised using statistical measures and these measures are subsequently compared with each other for the quality of the model to be evaluated. The real microstructures are deduced from digital images of their polished sections that are observed using a scanning electron microscope.

Optimization of Electrochemical Ferrates(VI) Synthesis

Department: Department of Inorganic Technology, Faculty of Chemical Technology
Also available in programme: Chemie a chemické technologie (double degree)


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.
