Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

In the course students are introduced into the basics of nanocomposites and composites in general. The student will be familiar with composite components and individual components: fillers, matrices and functional components will be discussed in the context of preparation, characterization and application. The most common components are discussed in terms of useful features and functional characteristics. Types of fillers are characterized in terms of shape and dimension.

Teaching methods



Nanocomposites present a wide range of materials used in various areas of life. The most common reason for choosing a nanocomposite is to improve one or more properties of the material. The study of the synthesis of these materials is an important discipline for the development of nanocomposite materials. There are currently several types of nanocomposite fillers that are preferred for certain matrices, namely natural materials and advanced functional particles. In the matrix region, the dominant group of the polymer is still dominant, where modification by inorganic or organic particles improves the mechanical and insulating parameters. Ceramic nanocomposites are mainly used for filtration and catalytic applications. An indispensable part of the nanocomposites are biocompatible and bionanocomposites containing the biological component.
