The subject includes more difficult topics from the chemical-engineering theory of dispersions. Besides common dispersions we treat systematically also polymeric systems.
Aim of the course -
Last update: Pátková Vlasta (15.01.2018)

Students shall be able to:

1. Understand number of theoretical concepts of dispersion systems - starting from characterization up to their manufacturing.

2. Design or modify various methods of the preparation of dispersion systems.

3. Understand relationships between dispersion characteristics and their application properties.

4. Apply the knowledge of polymerization proceses.
