The subject is focused on chemical and physical processes that are important for the preparation of new materials with precisely targeted properties. The approach is based on the thermodynamics of phase equilibrium in condensed systems. Substantial attention is paid to chemical equilibrium, reactivity and stability of materials. The subject also involves the thermodynamics of sintering, the precipitation of new phases and the properties of dispersed systems. Examples are presented describing the development and preparation of new advanced materials.

Last update: Fialová Jana (04.01.2018)

Students will be able to:

Solve phase equilibria in one-, two-, and three-component condensed systems.

Calculate the chemical equilibrium of the reactions of pure condensed phases and the reactions in solid and liquid solutions.

Determine the reactivity and stability of glass and ceramics materials.

Select a suitable process for the preparation of new materials with precisely defined properties.
