Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

To gain practical experience with the preparation of 1-3 dimensional nanotructured materials based on metals, metal oxides and sulphides of metals.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations
Experimental work in labs
Other activities


Laboratory exercises from the preparation of nanomaterials serve to practical acquaintance with methods of preparation of nanostructured materials based on metals, oxides and sulphides of metals. Students will focus on the methods of preparation from a solid and liquid environment within the blocks of laboratory exercises.

Way of continuous check of knowledge in the course of semester

The student's knowledge of the given task is always checked at the beginning of the laboratory exercises in the form of a short test, and the student draws up a protocol from each laboratory exercise in which he answers the questions related to the respective task.


Other requirements

For this subject are not the requirements for the student.


Subject has no prerequisities.


Subject has no co-requisities.

Subject syllabus:

1. Introductory tutorials. Introducing students to the lab, organizing laboratory exercises, safety and hygiene in laboratory work. Obligatory legal information to students about individual tasks, used chemicals and possible risks. Compilation of mandatory training documents. Students work independently on the realization of laboratory tasks devoted to targeted preparation of nanostructured materials (see section 3-13). They use instrumentation, chemical reactants and chemical aids as specified in the protocol. 2. Ultrasonic synthesis of nanoparticles MgO. 3. Mechanochemical synthesis of CuO. 4. Preparation of Al2O3 particles by hydrolysis of AlCl3. 5. Solvothermal synthesis of ZnS nanoparticles. 6. Preparation of ZnO by the precipitation method. 7. Preparation of Ag nanoparticles by reaction with saccharides. 8. Preparation of CuO by microwave decomposition. 9. Preparation of magnetite by chemical precipitation reaction in liquids. 10. Preparation of ZnO nanoparticles by hydrothermal synthesis. 11. Roses - preparation of nanoparticles Ag. 12. Synthesis of CeO2 by precipitation from aqueous solution. 13. Chemical vapor deposition - preparation of 1 dimensional nanostructured materials. 14. Credit week. Replacement term The term is made by students who have missed the semester.
