Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of the subject is to acquaint the students with advanced method of thermodynamic and kinetic study of chemical reaction from both theoretical and experimental point of view. At the end of the course, students should be able to apply their knowledge to a specific method of nanoparticles preparation and study of photocatalytic properties of nanomaterials or nanocomposites. The course also includes a short introduction to the theory of chemical reactors, which should help the students in the implementation of the experiments.
