Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Learn the basic concepts: structural and textural properties of solids. Apply the knowledge gained to evaluate and quantify the solids. Aware of and seek mutual relations between the structural and textural characteristics and some physical properties of solids.

Teaching methods

Experimental work in labs


Students will be acquainted with basic experimental approaches to study structural and physical parameters of the solids. Attention will be paid to infra red, nuclear magnetic and mass spectroscopies. Also, theories of monolayer (Langmuir) and multilayer (BET) adsorption, capillary condensation (Kelvin´ equation) as well as theory of micropores volume filling (Dubinin-Polanyi equation) will be studied.
