This course is recommended to PhD students interested in special applications of catalysis beyond the limits of chemical industry. The typical examples are applications of catalysis in refining processes. Other applied sectors are: catalysis in environmental protection, automotive catalysis, polymerization catalysis, asymmetric catalysis, electrochemical catalysis, use of enzyme catalysts in the laundry sector etc. At the beginning of the course students discuss the most convenient orientation of their studies with the lecturer. The main goal is the efficient and synergetic effect of the outputs of this course with the topics of the student´s PhD Thesis. It is recommended to do this course in English.
Aim of the course -
Last update: TAJ111 (17.04.2014)

The students will be able to:

The students who would successfully pass this course would have deep knowledge on catalytic applications in special sectors connected with the topics of their PhD Thesis. Theory and applications will be treated in parallel during the whole course.

The one-to-one in this course predominatly used approach is also reflected in the very individual consensual selection of study materials.

Moreover, for those who did not attend the course of Applied Catalysis, the following literature is recommended for basic studies: R(required-fundamental, A (additional-for further studies)

Syllabus -
Last update: Koubek Josef doc. Ing. CSc. (11.04.2014)

The syllabus of this course is rather individual. According to the consensually selected topic, which is "tailor-made" to the PhD issue, the following examples of various sectors of applied catalysis may be treated:

1. Environmental (green) catalysis.

2. Automotive catalysis.

3. Catalysts for refinery processes.

4. Synthesis of zeolite catalysts.

5. Synthesis of chiral organometallic catalysts.

6. Stereoselective polymerization catalysts.

7. Synthesis of new potential catalytic materials (for instance, functionalized mesoporous materials, MOFs, etc.).

8. New routes for heterogenization of homogeneous and enzyme catalysts.

9. New principles for separation of homogeneous catalysts.

10. Catalytic systems for fuel cells.

11. Catalytic processes of the type "ADAM-EVE" for energetical applications.

Etc.
