Last update: Kubová Petra Ing. (04.12.2017)
The course deals with selected chapters of physical chemistry on advanced level. Knowledge acquired in the basic course Physical Chemistry I is extended to real-behaving systems. Subjects covered involve state behavior of matter, thermodynamics of fluids, phase and chemical equilibria, properties of electrolyte-containing systems, chemical kinetics, and basic concepts of surface chemistry.
Aim of the course -
Last update: Kubová Petra Ing. (04.12.2017)

Students will be able to:

  • explain and describe basic relations governing physico-chemical processes
  • solve real physico-chemical problems encountered in chemical engineering practice
