Analytical and Physical Chemistry (double degree)

Analytical and Physical Chemistry (double degree)

Doctoral programme, Faculty of Chemical Engineering

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

The aim of the double-degree doctoral study programme Analytical and Physical Chemistry is to educate highly qualified specialists with theoretical knowledge and practical skills in analytical and physical chemistry. Graduates of this programme will be prepared for independent research work at academic institutions, universities or in practice in the field of analytical drug chemistry, forensic analytical chemistry, quality engineering and analytical chemistry, technical physical chemistry, thermodynamics, quantum chemistry, chemical physics, membrane engineering, etc.

Careers

The graduate of the double-degree programme Analytical and Physical Chemistry will have theoretically and practically mastered experimental techniques and instrumentations corresponding to his/her specialization and qualified knowledge of principles and possibilities of its use. Furthermore, the mastered methodology of interdisciplinary scientific work, modern laboratory and computational techniques, advanced methods of applied mathematics and statistics together with language- and soft-skills will ensure to the graduate the appropriate personnel growth, increased society prestige and better position on the labour market.

New effective separation membranes for water and wastewater treatment based on hybrid carbon-based materials

Department: Department of Physical Chemistry, Faculty of Chemical Engineering
Also available in programme: Chemie (double degree)
Theses supervisor: doc. Ing. Karel Friess, Ph.D.

Annotation

Current membrane separation processes allow efficient purification and physical disinfection of water from undesirable components on the basis of a size-sieving mechanism without the need for chemical agents. The pore sizes and their distribution on the membrane surface is an important factor for the effective removal of contaminants and microorganisms. The thesis will study the possibilities of using newly prepared membrane materials based on carbon materials (carbon nanotubes, graphene derivatives, etc.) with targeted surface modifications (eg doping with antimicrobial agents, etc.) in order to effectively remove collected contaminants from water. In addition to the preparation, characterization and testing of materials, the work will also include modelling of the separation process. The result of this work will be, besides the preparation of an effective separation material and describing the model, an extension of knowledge in the given membrane field.

Tailoring of nanostructure in mixed matrix membranes for selective removal of CO2 from biogas

Department: Department of Physical Chemistry, Faculty of Chemical Engineering
Theses supervisor: doc. Ing. Karel Friess, Ph.D.

Annotation

Membrane separation processes belong to modern technologically important separation methods, which are less demanding (economically and ecologically) in comparison with classical separation methods. For the gas separation applications, mainly polymer membranes are used. Their performance (permeability or separation effect) can be additionally adjusted by the targeted embedding of liquid or solid additives into the polymer matrix. The dissertation thesis will focus on the preparation, characterization, and testing of the so-called mixed matrix membranes for the separation of gases based on glassy polymers and functional nano-additives with a purposefully prepared structure. In addition, modeling of the separation process will be part of the work. The result of this work will be prepared and tested membrane material for the effective removal of CO2 from biogas and extension of knowledge in the given membrane field.
